Amino Acids

Amino acids are biologically important organic compounds composed of amine (-NH2) and carboxylic acid (-COOH) functional groups, along with a side-chain specific to each amino acid. The key elements of an amino acid are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, though other elements are found in the side-chains of certain amino acids. About 500 amino acids are known [1] and can be classified in many ways. They can be classified according to the core structural functional groups' locations as alpha- (α-), beta- (β-), gamma- (γ-) or delta- (δ-) amino acids; other categories relate to polarity, pH level, and side -chain group type (aliphatic, acyclic, aromatic, containing hydroxyl or sulfur, etc.). In the form of proteins, amino acids comprise the second-largest component (water is the largest) of muscles, cells and others issues. Outside proteins, amino acids perform critical roles in processes such as neurotransmitter transport and biosynthesis.

Product Description
L-Lysine Lysine (abbreviated as Lys or K) is an α-amino acid with the chemical formula HO2CCH(NH2) (CH2)4NH2. It is an essential amino acid for animals
L-Threonine Threonine (abbreviated as Thr or T) is an α-amino acid with the chemical formula HO2CCH(NH2)CH (OH)CH3. Its codons are ACU, ACA, ACC, and ACG. This essential amino acid is classified as polar.
L-Methionine Methionine abbreviated as Met or M) is an α-amino acid with the chemical formula HO2CCH(NH2) CH2CH2SCH3. This amino acid is classified as nonpolar as it has a straight side chain that possess a S-methylthioether (i.e. C–S–C bonding) at the γ-carbon
Taurin Taurine or 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, is an organic acid widely distributed in animal tissues. It is a major constituent of bile and can be found in the large intestine, and accounts for up to 0.1% of total human body weight
