For the experiments reported here, the system was calibrated using tetracosanoic acid in chloroform and 3- [(3-cholamidopropyl) dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulfonate (CHAPS) in PBS.
In order to validate the compatibility of MIR-based quantitation method for lipid and detergent analysis, the FTIR spectrometer was initially calibrated using either tetracosanoic acid (in chloroform) or CHAPS (in PBS).
Other members of MUFA are palmitoleic acid (C16:1), eicosenoic acid (C20:1 cis-11), docosenoic acid (C22:1), tetracosanoic acid (C24:0), and tetracosenoic acid (C24:1) in the range from 0.10 to 0.29%, 0.17 to 1.66%, 0.13 to 6.85%, 0.06 to 0.72% and 0.07 to 1.48%, respectively.
Rhus coriaria was found to possess fatty acids such as malic acid, linoleic acid, azelaic acid, tetradecanoic acid, 7- hexadecenoic acid, ethyl octadecenoate, palmitic acid, oleic acid, elaidic acid, stearic acid, 11,13-eicosadienoic acid, 11-eicosenoic acid, arachidic acid, behenic acid, and tetracosanoic acid. It was confirmed that oleic, linoleic, and palmitic acids are the major fatty acids in sumac fruits.

We investigated the feasibility of using deuterium-labeled tetracosanoic acid ([D.sub.3]-C24:0) as an alternative substrate to radiolabeled 1-[[sup.14]C]-labeled C24:0 for the measurement of peroxisomal ([beta]-oxidation activity in cultured primary human skin fibroblasts.
