Pyruvic acid - Definition



Definition


Pyruvic acid, or pyruvate, is the result of the degradation of glucose. During the degradation process, pyruvic acid is transformed into acetic acid. The brain, intestines, myocardium, and skeletal muscles can be the source of pyruvates. The accumulation of pyruvates can be found in cases of an over-exertion of the muscles, a deficiency in vitamin B1, diabetic acidosis, or certain leukemias. Too much pyruvates can cause vomiting, fatigue, loss of weight, or acute diarrhea in infants.
