Biocytin is a chemical compound that is an amide formed from the vitamin biotin and the amino acid L-lysine. As an intermediate in the metabolism of biotin, biocytin occurs naturally in blood serum and urine. The enzyme biotinidase cleaves biocytin and makes biotin available to be reused by other enzymes. Because biocytin is the natural substrate of the enzyme biotinidase, biocytin can be used to measure the biotinidase activity and therefore diagnose biotinidase deficiency. Biocytin is also used in scientific research as a histological stain for nerve cells.

  • Biocytin oder epsilon-N-(+)-Biotinyl-L-lysin ist eine chemische Verbindung, die zu den Carbonsäureamiden gehört. Mit dem Trivialnamen Biocytin wird ausschließlich die Verbindung aus dem Vitamin Biotin [(+)-Stereoisomer] und dem L-Enantiomer der Aminosäure Lysin bezeichnet. Dabei ist die Carboxygruppe des Biotins mit der ε-Aminogruppe des Lysins kondensiert.Als Zwischenprodukt des Biotinstoffwechsels tritt Biocytin im Blutserum und im Urin auf.
  • Biocitina es un compuesto químico que consiste en un grupo carbamoil formada a partir de la vitamina biotina y el aminoácido L-lisina. Como un intermedio en el metabolismo de la biotina, biocitina se produce naturalmente en el suero sanguíneo y la orina . La enzima biotinidasa escinde biocitina y hace biotina disponible para ser reutilizado por otras enzimas. Debido a que la biocitina es el sustrato natural de la enzima biotinidasa, la biocitina se puede utilizar para medir la actividad de biotinidasa y por lo tanto diagnosticar deficiencia de la misma .
