Metabolite Identification
Common Namecis-Aconitic acid
Descriptioncis-Aconitic acid, also known as cis-aconitate or acid, acontic, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as tricarboxylic acids and derivatives. These are carboxylic acids containing exactly three carboxyl groups. cis-Aconitic acid is a moderately acidic compound (based on its pKa). cis-Aconitic acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, cis-aconitic acid participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, cis-aconitic acid can be biosynthesized from citric acid through the action of the enzyme aconitate hydratase, mitochondrial. In addition, cis-aconitic acid can be converted into isocitric acid; which is mediated by the enzyme aconitate hydratase, mitochondrial. In humans, cis-aconitic acid is involved in the metabolic disorder called the glutaminolysis and cancer pathway. cis-Aconitic acid is a bland tasting compound. Outside of the human body, cis-aconitic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as jackfruits, root vegetables, breakfast cereals, oval-leaf huckleberries, and bog bilberries. This could make cis-aconitic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
