Pyruvate locates an intersection of key pathways of energy metabolism. It is the end product of glycolysis and the starting point for gluconeogenesis, and can be generated by transamination of alanine. It can be converted by the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex to acetyl CoA, which can enter the TCA cycle or serve as the starting point for the syntheses of long chain fatty acids, steroids, and ketone bodies depending on the tissue and metabolic state in which it is formed. It also has a critical role in balancing the energy needs of various tissues in the body. Abnormalities in pyruvate metabolism are associated with various diseases, such as pyruvate dehydrogenase complex deficiency and pyruvate carboxylase deficiency. Pyruvate metabolism analysis with the help of highly sensitive analytical tools is a powerful way to diagnose and gain new insights into disease mechanisms and treatments.
Pyruvate is widely used in pharmaceuticals, pesticides, cosmetics, chemical raw material development and other fields.
The main effect of pyruvate, especially calcium pyruvate, is to accelerate fat burning, and a number of weight loss products with pyruvate as the main effective ingredient have been produced. In the pharmaceutical industry pyruvate is involved in the synthesis of a variety of drugs, such as the treatment of hypertension new drug angiotensin I anti-drug, a series of protease inhibitors, sedatives, anti-inflammatory and analgesic drug cinchofen, anti-tuberculosis drug calcium isonicotifen pyruvate, deworming drug enbopirovamide, drug phosphoenol pyruvate, and antiviral agent azaquinoxaline. In the production of pesticides, ethyl pyruvate is an irreplaceable raw material and intermediate in the synthesis of pesticides, and is widely used in the synthesis of fungicides and herbicides. In the development of chemical raw materials, pyruvic acid is the main raw material for the production of tryptophan, phenylalanine, proteose and vitamin B. In addition, pyruvate is used as a raw material for feed and foodstuffs. In addition, pyruvate is used as a feed and food additive with good preservative and freshness preservation function.
