The low-molecular-weight organic acids (Analytical reagent), acetic acid, malic acid, citric acid, tartaric acid, malonic acid, oxalic acid and succinic acid were selected to form ternary complexes.
Phenolic compounds were biosynthesized with shikimic and malonic acid pathways and responsible for the carbohydrates precursors into amino acid (Ghasemzadeh et al., 2010).
showed that the level of vitamin B12 may be in the normal range even in patients without vitamin B12 supplementation,[6] and such patients' symptoms may be associated with functional vitamin B12 deficiency.[9] More sensitive indicators such as homocysteine and methyl malonic acid can be further measured.[10] One of the important reasons we report this case is that inhaling a high dose of nitrous oxide, such as up to 1000 branches/day (8 g/branch) in a short time is rare in previous literature, which allows us to learn more about this kind of patient and take appropriate therapeutic measures.
