Meanwhile, among the 10 potential biomarkers associated with blood stasis in rat urine, changes of 8 biomarkers including N-acetyl glycoprotein, succinate, 2-oxoglutarate, citrate, glycine, sarcosine, phenylacetylglycine and hippurate were significantly reduced by puerarin (Fig.
Additionally, N-methyl amino acids and sarcosine can be converted into FA via oxidative demethylation by specific enzymes.
There are also several ongoing randomized controlled trials with non-antipsychotic medications including ethyl EPA, D-serine, and sarcosine (see: www.
2-5) The proposal that sarcosine (N-methylglycine) (a metabolite of choline found in urine) may be characteristic for prostate cancer progression has since been examined in other laboratories.

Prostate screen A test for the compound sarcosine may help distinguish fast-growing prostate cancers from slow-growing ones (SN: 3/14/09, p.
Recently, attention has focused on the development of screening panels using metabolic markers, including the molecule sarcosine, which appears to be associated with more advanced disease.
One HHMI investigator and colleagues at the University of Michigan showed that as prostate cancer develops and progresses, sarcosine levels increase in both tumor cells and urine samples, suggesting that measurements of the metabolite could aid in non-invasively diagnosing the disease.
London, Mar 26 (ANI): Sarcosine, an N-methyl derivative of the amino acid glycine, can distinguish between slow-growing prostate cancers and those likely to spread and become lethal, playing a major role in cancer detection, according to scientists at the University of Michigan.
US researchers say they have identified a substance, sarcosine, which appears to make the cancer spread.
