  • FL 88

Lignoceric acid is a 24-carbon saturated (24:0) fatty acid. In mammals, it is synthesized during brain development and is found in cerebrosides.1 The deficient peroxisomal oxidation of very-long-chain fatty acids, including lignoceric acid, contributes to certain syndromes, including Zellweger cerebro-hepato-renal syndrome and X chromosome-linked adrenoleukodystrophy.2 Lignoceric acid is also a by-product of lignin production.
