Metabolite Identification
Common Name3-Indolebutyric acid
Description3-Indolebutyric acid is an indolic tryptophan metabolite occasionally found in human urine. (PMID: 7130309 ). 3-Indolebutyric acid is a plasma and urinary tryptophan-related metabolite related to metabolic and skin diseases. (PMID: 15206797 ). Plasma levels of tryptophan metabolites in the umbilical vein and artery are significantly higher than those in the maternal vein. (PMID: 1506727 ). 3-Indolebutyric acid has been shown to accelerated glucose uptake in the rat diaphragm. (PMID: 6025019 ). 3-Indolebutyric acid is also a microbial netabolite, urinary indole-3-butyrate is produced by Clostridia sp. (PMID: 6630445 ).
