What is Isocitric acid?

Isocitric acid (ICA, CAS 6061-97-8) has been an underestimated multi-purposed compound. ICA and citric acid are both metabolites of Tricarboxylic acid cycle (aka. Citric acid cycle or Krebs cycle). ICA unblocks succinate dehydrogenase in the cycle, enabling cell respiration under external stress and presumably promotes oxygen utilization in living cells. It differs citric acid from its structure and chirality while shows extensive potential uses.

Potential uses?

According to the literature, isocitric acid can be used in the field of food supplement, cosmetic ingredient as anti-ageing agent (with anti-oxidation and anti-wrinkle function), anticoagulant with blood samples, building blocks for new drugs, pharmaceutical intermediates, analytical standard, chelating agent, etc.

 

  • Cosmetic ingredient
  • Food supplement
  • Anticoagulant with blood samples
  • Pharmaceutical ingredients and as a building block

 

Many research showed isocitric acid can be produced through isolation from natural sources, yeast cultivation, chemical synthesis and biological transformations, but the efficiency is rather low. In Enzymaster, we developed more efficient and environmental-friendly process, producing high-quality Ds-(+)-threo-Isocitric acid monopotassium salt to cater for different needs.
