py·ru·vic acid

 (pī-ro͞o′vĭk, pĭ-)
n.
A colorless organic liquid, C3H4O3, formed as an intermediate in carbohydrate metabolism and fermentation and as an end product in glycolysis.

[pyr(o)- + Latin ūva, grape (from its being produced by the dry distillation of racemic acid, originally derived from grapes) + -ic.]

Compounds involved in the citric acid cycle and pyruvate metabolism were decreased in the postmortem aging period (adjusted p<0.05, FDR<0.10) (Table 3).
Future studies will attempt to elucidate the molecular and pathologic mechanisms that produce different characteristics in pyruvate metabolism depending on the type of glioma.
The downregulated biological processes and pathways mainly involve in nutrient metabolism and energy supply, such as fatty acid metabolism, pyruvate metabolism, amino acid metabolism, carbohydrate catabolism, citrate cycle, and oxidation reduction (Tables 2 and 3).
