L-Pipecolic acid is a lysine metabolite; birthmark in its catabolism is complex in hyperpipecolic acidemia, cerebro-hepato-renal syndrome, neonatal access adrenoleukodystrophy, and baby Refsum disease.It is a metabolite of lysine. It has a role as a Human metabolite and a plant metabolite. It is a conjugate abject of a L-pipecolate. It is an enantiomer of a D-pipecolic acid. It is a tautomer of a L-pipecolic acid zwitterion.

L-pipecolic acid is a accustomed Human metabolite present in Human blood, area is present as the primary enantiomer of pipecolic acid. L-pipecolic acid is a circadian imino acid (contains both imino (> C=NH) and carboxyl produced during the abasement of lysine, accumulates in physique fluids of breed with ambiguous abiogenetic peroxisomal disorders, including Zellweger syndrome, neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy, and baby Refsum disease. L-pipecolic acid levels are aswell animated in patients with abiding alarmist diseases. L-pipecolic acid is the substrate of delta1-piperideine-2-carboxylate reductase in the alleyway of lysine degradation.
