Plasma acylcarnitine levels increase with healthy aging


Figure 4. Highest correlations of acylcarnitines with age in human plasma. Log2 transformed intensity values for ions, identified by mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) and retention time (RT) for individual plasma samples are plotted against individual ages. Confidence intervals (95%) are shown in gray. (A) Eicosenoylcarnitine (C20:1), (B) eicosadienoylcarnitine (C20:2), (C) arachidylcarnitine (C20:0) and (D) decadienoylcarnitine (C10:2) were significant at FDR = 0.2. (E) Hydroxystearoylcarnitine (C18OH) and (F) decatrienoylcarnitine (C10:3) were significant at p < 0.05.
