Name2-Hydroxycaproic acid
Description2-Hydroxycaproic acid is a branched-chain alpha-keto acid that have been reported in normal human blood (PMID: 7130306) and in normal amniotic fluid. (PMID: 7076774) It has been found that 2-Hydroxycaproic acid is the most significant metabolite found in the CSF of patients infected with Nocardia. Nocardia species is an uncommon cause of meningitis, and Nocardia meningitis has a clinical picture similar to that of tuberculous meningitis (PMID: 3818936) [HMDB]
