Metabolite Identification
Common Name3,7-Dimethyluric acid
Description3,7-Dimethyluric acid, also known as 3,7-dimethyluric acid or 3,7-dimethyluric acid, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as xanthines. These are purine derivatives with a ketone group conjugated at carbons 2 and 6 of the purine moiety. 3,7-Dimethyluric acid is possibly soluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 3,7-Dimethyluric acid exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. 3,7-Dimethyluric acid can be biosynthesized from theobromine through its interaction with the enzyme xanthine dehydrogenase/oxidase. In cattle, 3,7-dimethyluric acid is involved in the metabolic pathway called the caffeine metabolism pathway.
