Metabolite Identification
Common NameIndolylacryloylglycine
DescriptionIndolylacryloylglycine (IAG) is a compound that is derived, in the same way as many other indole compounds, from tryptophan or indole compounds in the diet. It is likely a product of gut metabolism although the exact source is still unclear. IAG is elevated in the urine of autistic children with gastrointestinal disturbances.
