Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Keto-6-aminocaproate
Description2-Keto-6-aminocaproate is an intermediate in lysine degradation and can be formed from L-lysine. L-Lysine is an essential amino-acid that is a necessary building block for all protein in the body. L-Lysine plays a major role in calcium absorption; building muscle protein; recovering from surgery or sports injuries; and the body's production of hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. L-Lysine can be converted to 2-keto-6-aminocaproate via the enzyme L-lysine alpha-oxidase. 2-Keto-6-aminocaproate can spontaneously decarboxylate to 5-aminovalerate in the presence of the reaction product, hydrogen peroxide. It can also be spontaneously converted in solution to its cyclic form delta-piperideine-2-carboxylate. This has been demonstrated in vitro in the presence of catalase, which splits hydrogen peroxide.
