Adrenic acid is a naturally occurring polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) formed through a 2-carbon chain elongation of arachidonic acid. It is present in the adrenal glands, brain, testis, and kidney.{1288} Although there is trace metabolism of adrenic acid in the forebrain, the renal medulla is the only tissue which readily metabolizes the acid through cyclooxygenase activity.{1288,2047} The primary metabolite of adrenic acid in the rabbit kidney is 1a,1b-dihomo prostaglandin E2.{1288}
