D-Kynurenine may be used along with L-kynurenine to assess the specificity and kinetics of kynurenine metabolizing enzymes. D-Kynurenine is used to study the selectivity and activity of the G protein-coupled receptor, GPR109B. D-Kynurenine is used as a substrate in a fluorometric assay of D-amino acid oxidase.
