LysoPC is generated through hydrolysis of the sn-2 acyl chain of PC by phospholipase A2. It is a major component of oxidized low-density lipoprotein and is believed to have an important role in inflammatory diseases and atherosclerosis. LysoPC is the substrate for Autotaxin/LysoPLD generating lysophosphatidic acid which has an important role in cell motility. This analog is deuterated on the choline headgroup.
May contain up to 10-15% of the 2-acyl isomer.
