Therapeutic Area - Cardiovascular & Metabolic Solutions
A metabolite is the intermediate end product of metabolism. The term metabolite is usually restricted to small molecules. Metabolites have various functions, including fuel, structure, signaling, stimulatory and inhibitory effects on enzymes, catalytic activity of their own (usually as a cofactor to an enzyme), defense, and interactions with other organisms (e.g., pigments, odorants, and pheromones). A primary metabolite is directly involved in normal “growth”, development, and reproduction.
