Oxaloacetic Acid-13C4 - CAS 161096-82-8

Oxaloacetic Acid-13C4 (Cat No.:C000867) is a stable isotope-labeled form of oxaloacetic acid, an intermediate in the citric acid cycle and gluconeogenesis, critical metabolic pathways in living organisms. The “-13C4” in the compound’s name indicates that four carbon atoms in oxaloacetic acid have been replaced with the stable carbon-13 isotope. Deuterated and isotopically labeled compounds like this are essential in metabolic studies, isotopic tracing, and NMR spectroscopy. Oxaloacetic Acid-13C4 serves as a valuable reference standard for isotopic labeling experiments, allowing researchers to investigate the fate of oxaloacetic acid and its role in metabolic processes with high precision.
