Alpha-Amino-N-butyric acid (α-ANB), also known as alpha-aminobutyric acid, is a nonessential amino acid derived from the catabolism of methionine, threonine, and serine.
α-ANB is both formed and metabolized by reactions which require vitamin B6 as a cofactor.
Low levels of α-ANB may be seen when overall amino acids are low, especially it’s precursors. Additionally, a functional deficiency in vitamin B6 has been associated with lower levels of α-ANB and levels can increase with B6 supplementation.
Clinically, low levels of plasma α-ANB have been associated with depressive symptoms.
→ Levels of this metabolite may be elevated if its precursors are also elevated.
→ A functional need for vitamin B6 can limit the further metabolism of α-ANB and contribute to elevated levels.
→ Elevations of this metabolite have been studied in several conditions which contribute to a functional vitamin B deficiency, such as alcoholism, sepsis, hypocaloric weight loss, and excessive exercise.
Our specialized data entry service is designed to seamlessly integrate your laboratory results into your private dashboard. Just send in your lab test results—whether it's an image or a file—and our skilled data entry team will handle the rest. We accommodate various file formats like PDFs, JPGs, and Excel.
