D-Phenylalanine Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionD-Phenylalanine, also known as D-alpha-Amino-beta-phenylpropionic acid, is a kind of non-proteinogenic amino acid. The biological function of D-phenylalanine remains unclear. However, it has certain anti-depressant, analgesic activities and pharmacological activity at niacin receptor II. The mechanism action of its analgesic activity seems to originate from its inhibition of enkephalin degradation by the carboxypeptidase A. It can also be used as pharmaceutical intermediates that are mainly used to treat, prevent osteoporosis, cardiovascular, diabetes and arterioscleros.
  • Chemical PropertiesWhite crystalline powder
  • Usesantidepressant
  • DefinitionChEBI: The D-enantiomer of phenylalanine.
  • General DescriptionNeedles or prisms.
  • Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble. Aqueous solutions are weakly acidic.
  • Reactivity ProfileD-alpha-Amino-beta-phenylpropionic acid may be light sensitive. D-alpha-Amino-beta-phenylpropionic acid reacts with strong oxidizing agents, acids and bases. . Act as weak acids in solution.
  • Fire HazardFlash point data for D-alpha-Amino-beta-phenylpropionic acid are not available, however D-alpha-Amino-beta-phenylpropionic acid is probably combustible.
  • Safety ProfileMildly toxic by intraperitoneal route. Human systemic effects by ingestion: nausea, hypermotility, diarrhea. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.
