Applications
L-Cysteic acid monohydrate is used as a competitive inhibitor of the bacterial aspartate:alanine antiporter (AspT) exchange of aspartate and in other aspartate biological systems. It is used in monomeric surfactant development. It is used in studies of excitatory amino acids in the brain, such as those that bind to cysteine sulfinic acid receptors. L-Cysteic acid is a useful agonist at several rat metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs).

Solubility
Soluble in water.

Notes
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Store away from oxidizing agents.
