Metabolite Identification
Common Name3-Sulfopyruvic acid
Description3-Sulfopyruvic acid, also known as 3-sulfopyruvate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as alpha-keto acids and derivatives. These are organic compounds containing an aldehyde substituted with a keto group on the adjacent carbon. A carboxyalkanesulfonic acid comprising pyruvic acid with a sulfo group attached at the C-3 position. 3-Sulfopyruvic acid is a drug. 3-Sulfopyruvic acid is an extremely strong acidic compound (based on its pKa). 3-Sulfopyruvic acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Outside of the human body, 3-sulfopyruvic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as roselles, green zucchinis, red huckleberries, annual wild rices, and bitter gourds. This could make 3-sulfopyruvic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
