Glycyrrhizic Acid

Also known as: Dipotassium glycyrrhizinate; Glycyrrhizinate dipotassium; 68797-35-3; Neubormitin (TN); Dipotassium glycyrrhizate; AC1LCVM5; SureCN2390606
Molecular Formula: C42H60K2O16   Molecular Weight: 899.1128   InChIKey: BIVBRWYINDPWKA-VLQRKCJKSA-L
A widely used anti-inflammatory agent isolated from the licorice root. It is metabolized to GLYCYRRHETINIC ACID, which inhibits 11-BETA-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES and other enzymes involved in the metabolism of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Therefore, glycyrrhizic acid, which is the main and sweet component of licorice, has been investigated for its ability to cause hypermineralocorticoidism with sodium retention and potassium loss, edema, increased blood pressure, as well as depression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.   From: MeSH
