DescriptionArgininosuccinic acid, also known as L-argininosuccinate or ASA, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as aspartic acid and derivatives. Aspartic acid and derivatives are compounds containing an aspartic acid or a derivative thereof resulting from reaction of aspartic acid at the amino group or the carboxy group, or from the replacement of any hydrogen of glycine by a heteroatom. Argininosuccinic acid is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Argininosuccinic acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Argininosuccinic acid is a potentially toxic compound.
