L-Thioproline CAS 34592-47-7 98% With Best Quality And Price
Thiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid CAS: 34592-47-7 is a cyclic sulfur amino acid, a condensation product of cysteine and formaldehyde. The chemistry, biological effects and clinical use of TC are reviewed. Extensive animal experiments and studies on human subjects carried out in Europe indicate that a combination of TC and folic acid, ‘Folcysteine’, has revitalizing effects on age-related biochemical variables of blood and tissues. Further animal studies confirmed the anti-toxic effects of TC, particularly on the liver. The evidence accumulated so far suggests that addition of TC to the diet slows the aging process in mammals and prolongs their life span. On the other hand, findings suggesting that TC caused reverse transformation of tumor cells into normal cells and was effective against human cancers could not be confirmed in additional studies.
Thiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid CAS: 34592-47-7 has been clinically used for about 20 yr. mainly in the treatment of liver diseases and related gastrointestinal disturbances. Derivatives of TC with similar applications have been developed. Djenkolic acid is a naturally occurring relative of TC which is abundant in djenkol beans. The toxic effects of djenkolic acid and its possible conversion into TC are discussed
