Glycocyamine was first isolated from human and dog urine and identified by Weber (1-3). He supported the view that glycocyamine is a normal precursor of creatine and that its appearance in urine (2) is “an overflow phenomenon of an intermediate metabolic product ...” He expressed no views on the mechanism of its formation.
