2,3-bis·phos·pho·glyc·er·ate (bis-fos″fo-glisґər-āt) a salt or ester of bisphosphoglyceric acid; it is contained in red blood cells, where it plays a role in liberating oxygen from hemoglobin in the peripheral circulation. It is also an intermediate in the conversion of 3-phosphoglycerate to 2-phosphoglycerate. Called also 2,3-diphosphoglycerate.
