Chemical Information
FooDB Namefumarate
DescriptionFumaric acid, also known as fumarate or trans-butenedioic acid, belongs to dicarboxylic acids and derivatives class of compounds. Those are organic compounds containing exactly two carboxylic acid groups. Fumaric acid is soluble (in water) and a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Fumaric acid can be found in a number of food items such as cardoon, irish moss, sapodilla, and oregon yampah, which makes fumaric acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. Fumaric acid can be found primarily in most biofluids, including saliva, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), urine, and sweat, as well as in human prostate tissue. Fumaric acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. In humans, fumaric acid is involved in several metabolic pathways, some of which include azathioprine action pathway, the oncogenic action of succinate, thioguanine action pathway, and arginine and proline metabolism. Fumaric acid is also involved in several metabolic disorders, some of which include gout or kelley-seegmiller syndrome, the oncogenic action of d-2-hydroxyglutarate in hydroxygluaricaciduria, ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency (OTC deficiency), and mitochondrial complex II deficiency. Moreover, fumaric acid is found to be associated with alzheimer's disease, fumarase deficiency, and lung Cancer. Fumaric acid is a non-carcinogenic (not listed by IARC) potentially toxic compound. Fumaric acid or trans-butenedioic acid is the chemical compound with the formula HO2CCH=CHCO2H. It is produced in eukaryotic organisms from succinate in complex 2 of the electron transport chain via the enzyme succinate dehydrogenase. It is one of two isomeric unsaturated dicarboxylic acids, the other being maleic acid. In fumaric acid the carboxylic acid groups are trans (E) and in maleic acid they are cis (Z). Fumaric acid has a fruit-like taste . Acute exposure: EYES: irrigate opened eyes for several minutes under running water. INGESTION: do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth with water (never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person). Seek immediate medical advice. SKIN: should be treated immediately by rinsing the affected parts in cold running water for at least 15 minutes, followed by thorough washing with soap and water. If necessary, the person should shower and change contaminated clothing and shoes, and then must seek medical attention.
