Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Ethyl-3,(5 or 6)-dimethylpyrazine
Description2-Ethyl-3,(5 or 6)-dimethylpyrazine, also known as 2E3,6DMP, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as pyrazines. Pyrazines are compounds containing a pyrazine ring, which is a six-member aromatic heterocycle, that consists of two nitrogen atoms (at positions 1 and 4) and four carbon atoms. 2-Ethyl-3,(5 or 6)-dimethylpyrazine is a moderately basic compound (based on its pKa). 2-Ethyl-3,(5 or 6)-dimethylpyrazine is a cocoa, nutty, and potato tasting compound. Outside of the human body, 2-Ethyl-3,(5 or 6)-dimethylpyrazine has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as coffee and coffee products, soft-necked garlics, and tea. This could make 2-ethyl-3,(5 or 6)-dimethylpyrazine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
