16:0-18:1 Phosphatidylethanol

16:0-18:1 Phosphatidylethanol

1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanol (sodium salt)

Phosphatidylethanol (PEth) represents a group of glycerophospholipid homologues generated by substitution of ethanol for the lipid headgroup by the phospholipase D enzyme. Since the formation of PEth is specifically dependent  on ethanol, the diagnostic specificity of PEth as an alcohol biomarker is theoretically 100%.
