LP15431-7   Beta alanine
In biochemistry, beta-alanine is the only naturally occurring beta amino acid, which are amino acids in which the amino group is at the -position from the carboxylate group (i.e., two atoms away). The IUPAC name for beta-alanine would be 3-aminopropionic acid. Unlike its normal counterpart, L-alanine, beta-alanine has no chiral center. beta-alanine is not used in the biosynthesis of any major proteins or enzymes. It is formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. It is a component of the naturally occurring peptides carnosine and anserine and also of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B-5) which itself is a component of coenzyme A. Under normal conditions, beta-alanine is metabolized into acetic acid. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP15431-7   Beta alanine
Beta-Alanine is an amino acid metabolite converted from Anserine. Formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. Since neuronal uptake and neuronal receptor sensitivity to beta-alanine have been shown, the compound may be a false transmitter replacing Gamma-aminobutyric acid(GABA). Increased with Hyper Beta-Alanemia, a rare genetic disorder. Information from Online Medical Dictionary.org 2006 12 22. Source: Regenstrief Institute
