Metabolite Identification
Common Name1,3,7-Trimethyluric acid
Description1,3,7-Trimethyluric acid, also known as 1,3,7-trimethyluric acid or 1,3,7-trimethyluric acid, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as xanthines. These are purine derivatives with a ketone group conjugated at carbons 2 and 6 of the purine moiety. 1,3,7-Trimethyluric acid is possibly soluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 1,3,7-Trimethyluric acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. 1,3,7-Trimethyluric acid can be biosynthesized from caffeine; which is catalyzed by the enzymes cytochrome P450 1A2, cytochrome P450 3A4, cytochrome P450 2C8, cytochrome P450 2C9, and cytochrome P450 2E1. In cattle, 1,3,7-trimethyluric acid is involved in the metabolic pathway called the caffeine metabolism pathway.
