    Pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid

    $102.82 - $359.83
    Pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid is small amphoteric polar metabolite produced by many Streptomyces species, often co-produced with its dimer, pyrocoll. Pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid is an important dereplication standard in discovery, displaying a distinctive UV spectrum and a broad range of biological activities, albeit weak. More recently, pyrrole-2-carboxylic has demonstrated antiparasitic activity against Trypanosomes by selective proline racemase inhibition and has potent antifungal activity against Phytophthora.

    Pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
