  • Phytanic acid (3,7,11,15-tetramethylhexadecanoic acid) has been first isolated from butterfat [l] . In patients suffering from Refsum’s disease (heredopathia atactica polyneuritiformis) phytanic acid is one of the major constituents of serumand organ-lipids [2-71. It was also found to occur in low quantities in the serum of healthy persons [8]. From experiments with rats [9-l l] and patients with Refsum’s disease [ 12, 131, it has been shown that phythol is transformed to phytanic acid… CONTINUE READING
