Metabolite Identification
Common Name1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid
Description1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid is found in corn. 1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid is isolated from plants e.g. sugarbeet sap, sap of Acer saccharinum (maple syrup). Propane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid, also known as tricarballylic acid, carballylic acid, and beta-carboxyglutaric acid, is a tricarboxylic acid that has three carboxylic acid functional groups. The compound is an inhibitor of the enzyme aconitase and interferes with the Krebs cycle. (Wikipedia
