Lipid naming errors

Hello Professor Xia.

In the main classification of lipids, ‘acyl-’ seems to be misspelled as ‘adyl-’ (e.g. Triradylglycerols, Diradylglycerols). Please check.

Best regards.

Hello, the main classification is curated from RefMet database. “Triradylglycerol” is a standard name (see below).

In addition, based on the definition on Triradylglycerol and Triacylglycerol.). They are refering to the same class of chemical subtances. Therefore, they should be interchangable.

Hope this helps!
