Metabolite Identification
Common Name2-Methylglutaric acid
Description2-Methylglutaric acid, also known as a-methylglutarate or 2-methylpentanedioate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as methyl-branched fatty acids. These are fatty acids with an acyl chain that has a methyl branch. Usually, they are saturated and contain only one or more methyl group. However, branches other than methyl may be present. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on 2-Methylglutaric acid.
