Chemical Information
FooDB NameO-acetyl-L-serine
DescriptionO-acetyl-l-serine, also known as L-serine, acetate (ester) or (2s)-3-acetyloxy-2-aminopropanoate, is a member of the class of compounds known as L-alpha-amino acids. L-alpha-amino acids are alpha amino acids which have the L-configuration of the alpha-carbon atom. O-acetyl-l-serine is soluble (in water) and a moderately acidic compound (based on its pKa). O-acetyl-l-serine can be found in a number of food items such as sorrel, summer savory, purslane, and cherimoya, which makes O-acetyl-l-serine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. O-acetyl-l-serine can be found primarily in blood and urine, as well as in human prostate tissue. O-acetyl-l-serine exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans.
