MedKoo CAT#: 559332

CAS#: 99-05-8

Description: m-Aminobenzoic acid (ABA) is one popular derivative of highly conductive monomer of aniline and is an inactive analog of 3-aminobenzamide, which contains a carboxyl (COOH) group in its skeleton that is beneficial to various bio-interface and bio-analysis. It's also a known modulator of PARP activity, inhibitor of poly ADP-ribose and of the PARP-specific protease (interleukin-1 beta converting enzyme (ICE)-like protease). 3-Aminobenzoic acid is used as an intermediate for dyes, pesticides and other organic synthesis.
