Fatty Acid Metabolism
The article on ketone bodies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ketone_bodies) states that the "heart gets little energy from ketone bodies; it uses mainly fatty acids." This is contrary to the current article's "both the skeletal and cardiac muscles satisfy their energy requirement mainly through oxidation of ketone bodies." I don't know which one is right (did look in PubMed and found some articles suggesting limited ketone body usage by skeletal muscle). Clarify. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:44, 4 December 2009 (UTC)
Some people are vandilizing it
Why is there no IUPAC name?
I don't know, but chemspider says that the IUPAC name is: S-[2-[3-[[4-[[[5-(6-aminopurin-9-yl)-4-hydroxy-3-phosphonooxy-tet rahydrofuran-2-yl]methoxy-hydroxy-phosphoryl]oxy-hydroxy-phosphor yl]oxy-2-hydroxy-3,3-dimethyl-butanoyl]amino]propanoylamino]ethyl] ethanethioate.
28 Nov 2009 removed a tag from chembox that was messing up the display of the page. The tag contained: | InChI = 1/C23H38N7O17P3S/c1-12(31)51-7-6-25-14(32)4-5-26-21(35)18(34)23(2,3)9-44-50(41,42)47-49(39,40)43-8-13-17(46-48(36,37)38)16(33)22(45-13)30-11-29-15-19(24)27-10-28-20(15)30/h10-11,13,16-18,22,33-34H,4-9H2,1-3H3,(H,25,32)(H,26,35)(H,39,40)(H,41,42)(H2,24,27,28)(H2,36,37,38)/t13-,16-,17-,18+,22-/m1/s1 I have no idea what this means or how to fix it, but someone may want to. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:52, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
- The InChI is a code that identifies the compound. It is for the untrained person unreadable (and this one probably also for trained people), but it can be machine read. Having this code on the page results that you can find this compound using internet search engines (i.e., for sure find THIS compound, other searches may find for many compounds many mismatches, e.g. the name can be written in different ways, the formula can be sorted in a different way, but some of these codes are always leading to the right compound). It is hidden behind a 'show' button so it does not mess up the page in normal view, but is still there so it can be read. It may mess up the display in show-mode, but that is easily repaired by clicking hide again, or refreshing the page. I hope this explains. --Dirk Beetstra T C 10:27, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
