Metabolite Identification
Common NameAllantoic acid
DescriptionAllantoic acid is the END product of Allantoicase [EC:3.5.3.4], an enzyme involved in uric acid degradation (Purine metabolism). Although it is commonly accepted that allantoicase is lost in mammals, it has been identified in mice and humans. (PMID 11852104 ). A crystalline, transparent, colorless substance found in the allantoic liquid of the fetal calf; -- formerly called allantoic acid and amniotic acid.
