Part Descriptions

LP15424-2   Asparagine
A non-essential amino acid that is involved in the metabolic control of cell functions in nerve and brain tissue. It is synthesized from aspartic acid and ammonia by asparagine synthetase. (From Concise Encyclopedia Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 3rd ed) Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP15424-2   Asparagine
Asparagine is a hydrophilic amino acid with uncharged polar groups that represents the storage form of ammonia in tissues. Found in asparagus, asparagine is closely related to aspartic acid and is required for protein synthesis and peptide hormone production. Low levels may indicate magnesium deficiency.
