formiminoglutamic acid

 (FIGLU) [form-ĭ-me″no-gloo-tam´ik]
a product of histidine metabolism. The urine FIGLU concentration is elevated in some individuals with folic acid deficiency.

for·mim·i·no·glu·tam·ic ac·id (FIGLU),

(fōr-mim'i-nō-glū-tam'ik as'id),
An intermediate metabolite in l-histidine catabolism in the conversion of l-histidine to l-glutamiate, with the formimino group being transferred to tetrahydrofolate; it may appear in the urine of patients with folic acid or vitamin B12 deficiency, or liver disease.

formiminoglutamic acid

/for·mim·i·no·glu·tam·ic ac·id/ (FIGLU) (for-mim″ĭ-no-gloo-tam´ik) an intermediate in the catabolic pathway from histidine to glutamate; it may be excreted in the urine in liver disease, vitamin B12 or folic acid deficiency, or in glutamic formiminotransferase deficiency.

formiminoglutamic acid (FIGLU)

[fôrmim′inōglo̅o̅tam′ik]
a compound formed in the metabolism of histidine, present in urine in elevated levels in folic acid deficiency. Increased excretion of FIGLU may indicate folic acid deficiency.

for·mim·i·no·glu·tam·ic ac·id

(FIGLU) (fōr-mim'i-nō-glū-tam'ik as'id)
An intermediate metabolite in l-histidine catabolism in the conversion of l-histidine to l-glutamic acid, with the formimino group being transferred to tetrahydrofolic acid; it may appear in the urine of patients with folic acid or vitamin B12 deficiency or with liver disease.

formiminoglutamic acid

a product of histidine metabolism. High levels in ruminant urine suggest possibility of nutritional deficiency of cobalt. Called also FIGLU.

The ability to incorporate metabolites into the ESI-TMS procedure that are not usually measured, such as guanidinoacetate, THCA, and formiminoglutamate, increases the range of IEM that can be potentially detected over that of conventional methods.
