 [in-dok´sil]
an oxidation product of indole formed in tryptophan decomposition, and excreted in the urine as indican.

in·dox·yl

(in-dok'sil),
The radical of 3-hydroxyindole; a product of intestinal bacterial degradation of indoleacetic acid, excreted in the urine as indoleaceturic acid (conjugated with glycine), as a sulfate (urinary indican), or as a glucuronide (glucosiduronate); increased amounts are excreted in phenylketonuria.
