Metabolite Identification
Common NameUreidopropionic acid
DescriptionUreidopropionic acid, also known as 3-ureidopropanoate or N-carbamoyl-b-alanine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as ureas. Ureas are compounds containing two amine groups joined by a carbonyl (C=O) functional group. Ureidopropionic acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. In cattle, ureidopropionic acid is involved in the metabolic pathway called the beta-alanine metabolism pathway. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Ureidopropionic acid.

Enzymes

General function:
Not Available
Specific function:
Catalyzes the hydrolysis of the amide bond in N-(4-oxoglutarate)-L-cysteinylglycine (deaminated glutathione), a metabolite repair reaction to dispose of the harmful deaminated glutathione. Plays a role in cell growth and apoptosis. Has tumor suppressor properties that enhances the apoptotic responsiveness in cancer cells. It is also a negative regulator of primary T-cells.
