Chemical Glycyrrhizic Acid

Name Glycyrrhizic Acid
CAS Type 1 Name alpha-D-glucopyranosiduronic acid, (3 beta,20 beta)-20-carboxy-11-oxo-30-norolean-12-en-3-yl 2-O-beta-D-glucopyranuronosyl-
Equivalent Terms Acid, Glycyrrhizic | Acid, Glycyrrhizinic | Diammonium Glycyrrhizinate | Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate | Glycyrrhizate, Zinc | Glycyrrhizin | Glycyrrhizinate, Diammonium | Glycyrrhizinate, Dipotassium | Glycyrrhizinic Acid | Zinc Glycyrrhizate
CAS Registry Number 1405-86-3
Definition A widely used anti-inflammatory agent isolated from the licorice root. It is metabolized to GLYCYRRHETINIC ACID, which inhibits 11-BETA-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES and other enzymes involved in the metabolism of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Therefore, glycyrrhizic acid, which is the main and sweet component of licorice, has been investigated for its ability to cause hypermineralocorticoidism with sodium retention and potassium loss, edema, increased blood pressure, as well as depression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.
