Chemical Eicosapentaenoic Acid

Name Eicosapentaenoic Acid
CAS Type 1 Name 5,8,11,14,17-Eicosapentaenoic acid
Equivalent Terms 5,8,11,14,17-Eicosapentaenoic Acid | 5,8,11,14,17-Icosapentaenoic Acid | Acid, Eicosapentanoic | Eicosapentanoic Acid | omega 3 Eicosapentaenoic Acid | omega-3-Eicosapentaenoic Acid | Timnodonic Acid
CAS Registry Number 1553-41-9
Definition Important polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish oils. It serves as the precursor for the prostaglandin-3 and thromboxane-3 families. A diet rich in eicosapentaenoic acid lowers serum lipid concentration, reduces incidence of cardiovascular disorders, prevents platelet aggregation, and inhibits arachidonic acid conversion into the thromboxane-2 and prostaglandin-2 families.
