Summary of "Fate and distribution of kynurenic acid administered as beverage."

Kynurenic acid (KYNA) is a biologically active metabolite of tryptophan exerting action on several receptors located in the brain and periphery. KYNA can be synthesized endogenously or supplied in the diet. It was documented that KYNA is present in various types of food. However, its presence in beverages was not yet investigated. Here, we measured content of KYNA in tea and coffee as well as analyzed distribution and fate of intragastrically administered labelled KYNA in mice.
