1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic Acid is an intermediate in the conversion of methionine to ethylene during the ripening in apples. It also plays an important role in the biosynthesis of the plant hormone ethylene.
|Alternate Names||1-Aminocyclopropanecarboxylic acid; ACPC|
|Application Notes||1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic Acid is an intermediate in the conversion of methionine to ethylene during the ripening in apples. It also plays an important role in the biosynthesis of the plant hormone ethylene.|
|Base Catalog Number||150348|
|Beilstein Registry Number||2076413|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||An agonist for the glycine modulatory site of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor complex. Mimics the effects of glycine on the NMDA receptor ion channel and blocks 3H-glycine binding to rat forebrain membrane (IC50 = 38 nM). Blocks NMDA-induced release of arachidonic acid (IC50 = 131 µM) in cerebellar granule cells. Reduces NMDA-induced cell death in hippocampal neurons.|
