To validate the recovery of cis-andtrans-C18:1, which varied widely in relative quantity in clinical samples, standard solutions with varying octadecanoic acids and constant amounts of deuterated lignoceric acid (C24 saturated FA) were calculated for cis-(Figure 2, A) and trans-(Figure 2, B) octadecenoic acid.
Each 100 mL contained <1 g lauric acid, <1 g myristic acid, 4.8 g palmitic acid, 1.4 g stearic acid, 27.7 g oleic acid, 9.6 g linoleic acid, <1 g linolenic acid, 0.5 g arachidonic acid, 0.5 g eicosanoic acid, 1.4 g behenic acid, and 0.5 g lignoceric acid.
