Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0000392

Semantic Type: Pharmacologic Substance

Semantic Type: Biologically Active Substance

Semantic Type: Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein

MSH Definition: An amino acid formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. Since neuronal uptake and neuronal receptor sensitivity to beta-alanine have been demonstrated, the compound may be a false transmitter replacing GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID. A rare genetic disorder, hyper-beta-alaninemia, has been reported.
