360900  PAF C-16-d4

Platelet-activating Factor C-16-d4 (CAS 211106-54-6)

PAF C-16-d4 contains four deuterium atoms at the 7, 7', 8, and 8' positions of the hexadecyl moiety. It is intended for use as an internal standard for the quantification of PAF C-16 by GC- or LC-mass spectrometry. PAF C-16 is a naturally occurring phospholipid produced upon stimulation through two distinct pathways known as the “remodeling” and 'de novo' pathways.1 It is a potent mediator of neutrophil migration,2 the production of reactive oxygen species,3 and IL-64 in human macrophages. It is a more potent mediator of platelet aggregation than PAF C-185. Pathological processes involving PAF include necrotizing enterocolitis,6 inflammation, asthma, and allergy.7
