Unfortunately, referring to MADD as GA-II can be misleading because glutaric acid, although sometimes increased in urine organic acid profiles of MADD patients, is often not increased in their blood acylcarnitine profiles.
In this study, various zinc glutarate derivatives were newly prepared by the reaction of zinc oxide with ten different glutaric acid derivatives.
Ten different glutaric acid derivatives were purchased from Aldrich Chemical Company: glutaric acid (GA), 2,2-dimethylglutaric acid (2,2-DMGA), 3,3-dimethylglutaric acid (3,3-DMGA), 2-methylglutaric acid (2-MGA), 3-methylglutaric acid (3-MGA), 3-phenylglutaric acid (3-PhGA), 2-ketoglutaric acid (2-KetoGA), 3-ketoglutaric acid (3-KetoGA).
Here, the amount of reacted ZnO was estimated by measuring the amount of unreacted glutaric acid obtained after removal of the used toluene and acetone from the filtrate.
