Metabolite Identification
Common Name3-Cresotinic acid
Description3-Cresotinic acid, also known as 2,3-cresotinate or homosalicylic acid, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as salicylic acids. These are ortho-hydroxylated benzoic acids. 3-Cresotinic acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. 3-Cresotinic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, milk (cow). This could make 3-cresotinic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. 3-Cresotinic acid is a primary metabolite. Primary metabolites are metabolically or physiologically essential metabolites. They are directly involved in an organism’s growth, development or reproduction. Based on a literature review a small amount of articles have been published on 3-Cresotinic acid.
