Metabolite Identification
Common NameSuccinylcarnitine
DescriptionSuccinylcarnitine (C4DC) arises from the TCA cycle intermediate succinyl-CoA in plasma and liver. It is an O-acylcarnitine having succinyl as the acyl substituent. It functions as a secondary metabolite, which is a metabolite that is not directly involved in the normal growth, development, or reproduction of an organism.
