Introduction

guidelines
2-Oxovaleric acid is an alpha-ketoacid is a metabolite usually found in human biofluids. Ketoacids have been known to play an important part in the metabolism of valine, leucine, isoleucine. 2-Oxovaleric acid presence has been determined in human blood serum and urine in numerous scientific documents, although its origin remains unclear.
