(Asp, D) An amino acid.
As A Treatment"Non-essential amino acid..."
One of the twenty amino acids commonly present in proteins of living systems.
a crystalline amino acid found in proteins and occurring naturally in sugar beets and sugar cane
(C3H7NO4), Aspartic acid is an acidic, genetically coded amino acid.
(D,HOOCCH2CH(NH2)COOH) Asp. A nonessential amino acid that is abundant in molasses. The carboxylic acid group on the side chain is ionized under physiological conditions, making aspartic acid residues in proteins hydrophilic.
A non-essential amino acid that the body can make from other sources in sufficient amounts to meet its needs. It is a critical part of the enzyme in the liver that transfers nitrogen-containing amino groups, either in building new proteins and amino acids, or in breaking down proteins and amino acids for energy and detoxifying the nitrogen in the form of urea.
A non-essential amino acid in mammals. It contains a hydrophilic negatively charged carboxylate group sidechain. [ see schematic diagram
Aspartic acid (Asp, D), also known as aspartate, the name of its anion, is one of the 20 natural proteinogenic amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins.
