AKA: 4-Hydroxyphenylpyruvate, 4-HPPA
4-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid is an intermediate in the breakdown of phenylalanine.
4-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid is converted to homogentisate; a blockage at this step results in increased homogentisate, which can be diagnostic of alkaptonuria.
If the pathway is not blocked, 4-HPPA ends up in the Krebs cycle converted into fumaric acid.
