Isoleucine

Isoleucine is an essential amino acid and is one of the three amino acids having branched hydrocarbon side chains.  It is usually interchangeable with leucine and occasionally with valine in proteins.  The side chains of these amino acids are not reactive and therefore not involved in any covalent chemistry in enzyme active centers; however, these

Valine

Valine is an aliphatic amino acid that is closely related to leucine and isoleucine both in structure and function.  These amino acids are extremely hydrophobic and are almost always found in the interior of proteins.  They are also seldom useful in routine biochemical reactions, but are relegated to the duty of determining the three-dimensional structure

Phenylalanine

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid (a building block for proteins in the body), meaning the body needs it for health but cannot make it.  You have to get it from food or supplements.  Phenylalanine is found in 3 forms:  L-phenylalanine, the natural form found in proteins; D-phenylalanine (a mirror image of L-phenylalanine that is

Lysine

Lysine, or L-lysine, is an essential amino acid.  That means it is necessary for human health, but the body can’t manufacture it.  You have to get lysine from food or supplements.  Amino acids like lysine are the building blocks of protein.  Lysine is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in the
