Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Metabolic intermediates refers to molecules which are the precursors or metabolites of biologically significant molecules.

Although these intermediates are of relatively minor direct importance to cellular function, they can play important roles in the allosteric regulation of enzymes.

Clinical significance

Some can be useful in measuring rates of metabolic processes (for example, Dopac or 3-aminoisobutyrate).

Because they can represent unnatural points of entry into natural metabolic pathways, some (such as AICA ribonucleotide) are of interest to researchers in developing new therapies.
