Palmitic acid (15-yne)

Palmitic acid (15-yne)

15-hexadecynoic acid

Alkynyl palmitic acid (aPA) is a modified palmitic acid with an ω-terminal alkyne. The terminal alkyne group can be used in a highly specific linking reaction with azide-containing reagents, known as ‘click chemistry’. The use of aPA in isolating palmitoylated proteins has been described (see References).
