Description2-Aminobenzoic acid, also known as vitamin L1 or 2-aminobenzoate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as aminobenzoic acids. These are benzoic acids containing an amine group attached to the benzene moiety. 2-Aminobenzoic acid is a moderately basic compound (based on its pKa). 2-Aminobenzoic acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within yeast, 2-aminobenzoic acid participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, pyruvic acid, L-glutamic acid, and 2-aminobenzoic acid can be biosynthesized from chorismate and L-glutamine through the action of the enzyme anthranilate synthase component. In addition, 2-aminobenzoic acid and phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate can be converted into N-(5-phosphoribosyl)-anthranilate through its interaction with the enzyme anthranilate phosphoribosyltransferase. In yeast, 2-aminobenzoic acid is involved in the metabolic pathway called the tryptophan metabolism pathway. 2-Aminobenzoic acid is a potentially toxic compound.
