Chemical Information
FooDB NameOxalacetic acid
DescriptionOxalacetic acid, also known as oxaloacetate or 2-oxosuccinate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as short-chain keto acids and derivatives. These are keto acids with an alkyl chain the contains less than 6 carbon atoms. Oxalacetic acid is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Oxalacetic acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, oxalacetic acid participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, oxalacetic acid can be biosynthesized from D-aspartic acid through the action of the enzyme D-aspartate oxidase. In addition, oxalacetic acid can be biosynthesized from D-aspartic acid through the action of the enzyme D-aspartate oxidase. In humans, oxalacetic acid is involved in the metabolic disorder called the canavan disease pathway. Outside of the human body, Oxalacetic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as chinese mustards, lowbush blueberries, brassicas, maitakes, and kombus. This could make oxalacetic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. An oxodicarboxylic acid that is succinic acid bearing a single oxo group.
