Metabolite Identification
Common NamePhenylacetylglycine
DescriptionN-Phenylacetylglycine, also known as phenaceturic acid or phenacetate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as n-acyl-alpha amino acids. N-acyl-alpha amino acids are compounds containing an alpha amino acid which bears an acyl group at its terminal nitrogen atom. N-Phenylacetylglycine is possibly soluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). N-Phenylacetylglycine exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans.
