Sumiki's acid is a naturally occurring human metabolite. (PMID: 949837) Sumiki's acid was first identified in the urine of a leukemic patient who was excreting an abnormal amount of its glycine derivative. (PMID: 5043270) Sumiki's acid was found to be excreted by normal subjects after a Phenylalanine loading, while heterozygotes for phenylketonuria don't excrete it (instead, they excrete 2-Hydroxybenzeneacetic acid). (PMID: 4708049) Patients receiving furan-containing sugar solutions i.v. convert 50% of the 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furfural into Sumiki's acid. (PMID: 4202014) [HMDB]
