69803-5Alpha ketoglutarate [Moles/volume] in Serum or PlasmaActive

Part Description

LP15365-7   Alpha ketoglutarate
2-Ketoglutaric acid (alpha ketoglutarate) is an important nitrogen transporter and a key intermediate in the Krebs cycle.Amino groups of amino acids are attached to it by transamination and carried to the liver where the urea cycle takes place. Increased levels found with 2-ketoglutaric DH deficiency, GA I, 2-amino/2-ketoadipate acidemia, dihdrolipoyl DH(E3) deficiency, glycogen storage disorders I, 2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria(D-form), and fumarase deficiency. Very low values are sometimes encountered in chronic fatigue syndrome.(Information from: Kumps A, Duez P, Mardens Y.
