WWWTP: Lipid edition

20130620-082422.jpg

This photo from the New York Times caught my eye not because of the headline* but because of the lipid behind the gentleman in the photo.

It appears to be gamma linoleic acid drawn up, and note the numbering! Here’s the punch line: it’s actually correct!

So at first glance, it’s not obvious why that molecule is there, and it was probably drawn by an intern with a love for Wikipedia, but given how often these things are screwed up, I’m really proud to see it done right for once!

*I still haven’t read the article, believe it or not
