7-Bromoheptanoic acid CAS:30515-28-7 is a fatty acid synthesized through the action of an enzyme called bromoperoxidase. The synthesis of 7-bromoheptanoic acid is an important step in the biosynthesis of bromo derivatives as drugs. The hydroxyl group in this molecule and its conjugates have been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth and induce apoptosis. They also suppressed the phase transition temperature of fatty acids and the formation of fatty acid micelles, probably due to the presence of chloride ions in their structures. This compound has been shown to have physiological functions, such as regulating blood pressure and maintaining normal electrolyte levels, despite its low bioavailability.
