Phosphoenolpyruvic Acid Monopotassium Salt
Phosphoenolpyruvic acid(PEP) is used for regeneration of ATP from ADP in enzyme-catalyzed syntheses. PEP protects against the cell injury induced by Oxidative stress & against the dysfunction in carbohydrate metabolism.

|Base Catalog Number||195707|
|Beilstein Registry Number||4603446|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Phospho(enol)pyruvic acid (PEP) is involved in glycolysis and gluconeogeneis. In glycolysis, PEP is metabolized by Pyruvate Kinase to yield pyruvate. In plants, PEP is involved in the formation of aromatic amino acids as well as in the carbon fixation pathway.|
