Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA or also icosapentaenoic acid) is an
omega-3 fatty acid. In physiological literature, it is given the
name 20:5(n-3). It also has the trivial name timnodonic acid. In
chemical structure, EPA is a carboxylic acid with a 20-carbon chain
and five cis double bonds; the first double bond is located at the
third carbon from the omega end. EPA is a polyunsaturated fatty
acid (PUFA) that acts as a precursor for prostaglandin-3 (which
inhibits platelet aggregation), thromboxane-3, and leukotriene-5
groups (all eicosanoids).
