Chemical Information
FooDB Nameammonium
DescriptionAmmonium, also known as ammonium(1+) or nh4+, is a member of the class of compounds known as homogeneous other non-metal compounds. Homogeneous other non-metal compounds are inorganic non-metallic compounds in which the largest atom belongs to the class of 'other nonmetals'. Ammonium can be found in a number of food items such as irish moss, sago palm, sorghum, and malabar spinach, which makes ammonium a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. Ammonium can be found primarily in blood and sweat. Ammonium exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. In humans, ammonium is involved in the the oncogenic action of 2-hydroxyglutarate. Ammonium is also involved in a couple of metabolic disorders, which include the oncogenic action of d-2-hydroxyglutarate in hydroxygluaricaciduria and the oncogenic action of l-2-hydroxyglutarate in hydroxygluaricaciduria. Moreover, ammonium is found to be associated with n-acetylglutamate synthetase deficiency. The ammonium cation is a positively charged polyatomic ion with the chemical formula NH+ 4. It is formed by the protonation of ammonia (NH3). Ammonium is also a general name for positively charged or protonated substituted amines and quaternary ammonium cations (NR+ 4), where one or more hydrogen atoms are replaced by organic groups (indicated by R) .
