Intermediário metabólico

Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre.

Intermediários metabólicos são moléculas que são os precursores ou metabólitos de moléculas biologicamente significantes.[1][2]

Embora esses intermediários sejam de importância relativamente menor para a função celular, eles podem desempenhar papéis importantes na regulação alostérica de enzimas.[3][4]

Significância clínica[editar | editar código-fonte]

Alguns podem ser úteis para medir taxas de processos metabólicos (por exemplo, ácido 3,4-di-hidroxifenilacético ou 3-aminobutirato).[5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

Porque podem representar pontos de entrada não naturais em vias metabólicas naturais, alguns (tais como ribonucleotídeo AICA) são de interesse para pesquisadores no desenvolvimento de novas terapias.[12][13][14]
