The metabolism of beta-methyl-[1-14C]heptadecanoic acid, a potential myocardial imaging agent, was investigated in perfused hearts and livers from rats. Hepatic uptake is approximately 4.5 times greater than cardiac uptake. In the heart, 66% of beta-methyl-heptadecanoic acid metabolism occurs via omega-oxidation, 33% by esterification and less than 1% via alpha-oxidation. In contrast, 53% of hepatic metabolism of beta-methyl-heptadecanoic acid occurs via alpha-oxidation, 27% viapmid:2230995 fatcat:24kir2d37zeznfgf337ongpxmy
