Compound Summary for: CID 239


Also known as: 3-Aminopropanoic acid; 107-95-9; 3-Aminopropionic acid; Abufene; beta-Aminopropionic acid; 2-Carboxyethylamine; Beta Alanine
Molecular Formula: C3H7NO2   Molecular Weight: 89.09318   InChIKey: UCMIRNVEIXFBKS-UHFFFAOYSA-N
An amino acid formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. Since neuronal uptake and neuronal receptor sensitivity to beta-alanine have been demonstrated, the compound may be a false transmitter replacing GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID.
