Metabolite Identification
Common NameAllantoic acid
DescriptionAllantoic acid, also known as diureidoacetate or allantoate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as n-carbamoyl-alpha amino acids. N-carbamoyl-alpha amino acids are compounds containing an alpha amino acid which bears an carbamoyl group at its terminal nitrogen atom. Allantoic acid is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Allantoic acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans.
