CYSTEIC ACID - CAS 13100-82-8
Cysteic acid(CAT: M060343) is a derivative of the amino acid cysteine, in which the sulfur atom has been oxidized to a sulfinic acid (-SO2H) group. Cysteic acid is formed in the body as an intermediate in the metabolism of cysteine and can also be found in some foods, such as soybeans and egg yolks. Cysteic acid has been studied for its potential therapeutic applications in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It has also been used as a starting material for the synthesis of other biologically active compounds, such as sulfonic acid-containing peptides and peptidomimetics.
