The excreted hippuric acid from rats administered 6-N-trimethyl-L-[1-14C]-lysine together with a dose of sodium benzoate was isolated and analyzed for radioactivity. From 21 to 30% of the isotope from metabolized substrate was incorporated into hippuric acid showing that there is a rather direct conversion of carbons 1 and 2 of 6-N-trimethyl-L-lysine to glycine.
