Lysine is an essential basic amino acid that plays a major role in calcium absorption and the production of hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. Lack of lysine can result in niacin deficiency and cause the pellagra. Other diseases associated with lysine include hyperlysinemia, lysine intolerance, carbamoyl phosphate synthetase deficiency, and saccharopinuria (saccharopine is an intermediate in the metabolism of lysine).
