Amino Acids that are Derived from other Amino Acids
Asparagine is a non-essential amino acid in humans, Asparagine is a beta-amino derivative of Aspartic acid and plays an important role in the biosynthesis of glycoproteins and other proteins. A metabolic precursor to aspartate, Asparagine is a nontoxic carrier of residual ammonia to be eliminated from the body.
Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is synthesized from the essential amino acid Methionine via the transmethylation and transsulfuration pathway.
“Glutamic Acid” is sometimes referred to as “Glutamate” or a negative ion form. Glutamic acid is a nonessential amino acid that functions as an important metabolic intermediate. … When aminated, glutamic acid forms the important amino acid Glutamine.
