Aminoalcohol, namely 2-amino-1,3-propanediol, is a prochiral amino alcohol. Because its structure is similar to serine, it is usually called serine alcohol. The chemical properties of serine alcohol are stable, corrosive, hygroscopic and good water solubility. Natural silk ammonia alcohol was found early in the process of combining the growth of perisporoside toxin of sugarcane eye spot pathogen. Later, natural serinol was also found in the process of rhizobial toxin synthesis by prokaryotes such as Burkholderia mansoni, slow-growing soybean rhizobia and slow-growing rhizobia.
It is the main raw material for the synthesis of iodophor. In clinical practice, iodophor is used for various angiography, such as cerebral arteriography. Cardiovascular angiography includes coronary artery, thoracoabdominal artery, peripheral artery, vein and digital subtraction angiography. And selective visceral arteriography of urinary tract, joints, fistula, spinal cord, cistern and ventricle. Enhanced scanning in CT examination.
As an important second messenger in eukaryotes, acylated serinol participates in regulating and managing a variety of physiological processes such as cell growth, endocytosis, stress response and apoptosis, and plays an important role in eukaryote metabolism. Like other chiral chemicals, serinol and its derivatives also have great commercial value, and are more and more widely used in medicine, chemical industry and other fields.
