Chemical Information
FooDB NameUreidopropionic acid
DescriptionUreidopropionic acid, also known as 3-ureidopropanoate or N-carbamoyl-b-alanine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as ureas. Ureas are compounds containing two amine groups joined by a carbonyl (C=O) functional group. Ureidopropionic acid is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Ureidopropionic acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, ureidopropionic acid participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, ureidopropionic acid can be converted into β-alanine through its interaction with the enzyme Beta-ureidopropionase. In addition, ureidopropionic acid can be biosynthesized from dihydrouracil through its interaction with the enzyme dihydropyrimidinase. In humans, ureidopropionic acid is involved in beta-alanine metabolism. A beta-alanine derivative that is propionic acid bearing a ureido group at position 3. Outside of the human body, Ureidopropionic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as gram beans, broccoli, climbing beans, oriental wheats, and mandarin orange (clementine, tangerine). This could make ureidopropionic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Ureidopropionic acid is a potentially toxic compound.
