Osbond acid, 22:5 c, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as very-long-chain fatty acids. It’s a polyunsaturated cis fatty acid, and the cis-isomer of Docosapentaenoic acid, DPA, 22:5. Osbond acid has been found in human tissue and biofluids.
Levels of this fatty acid may be diminished during fatty acid desaturase syndrome and this may affect development, but research is inconclusive.
