Product Name: Azalea acid-Tryptophan
IUPAC Name: (2S,2’S)-2,2′-(nonanedioylbis(azanediyl))bis(3-(1H-indol-3-yl)propanoic acid),
Description: Azelaic acid (AzA) is a saturated 9-carbon dicarboxylic acid derived from the fungus Pityrosporum ovale and can be found in rye, wheat, and barley. Azelaic acid interferes with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesis, inhibits mitochondrial oxidoreductase, competitively inhibits tyrosinase, and decreases free radical formation. Tryptophan is important as the major precursor of the nicotinamide nucleotide coenzymes,NAD and NADP, and in the central nervous system as the precursor of the transmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine). The indole nucleus of tryptophan is also present in many fungal toxic peptides such as phalloidin and amanitin.
