Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Ethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazine
Description2-Ethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazine, also known as 2,6-dimethyl-3-ethyl-pyrazine or fema 3150, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as pyrazines. Pyrazines are compounds containing a pyrazine ring, which is a six-member aromatic heterocycle, that consists of two nitrogen atoms (at positions 1 and 4) and four carbon atoms. 2-Ethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazine is a moderately basic compound (based on its pKa). 2-Ethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazine is a burnt almonds, coffee, and potato tasting compound. Outside of the human body, 2-Ethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazine has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as fishes, cereals and cereal products, tortilla chips, tea, and green vegetables. This could make 2-ethyl-3,5-dimethylpyrazine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
