 Synonyms & Historicals
Alanine .
Abufène .
Alanine, L-Isomer .
L-Alanine .
Alanine, L Isomer .
L Alanine .
L-Isomer Alanine .
A non-essential amino acid that occurs in high levels in its free state in plasma. It is produced from pyruvate by transamination. It is involved in sugar and acid metabolism, increases IMMUNITY, and provides energy for muscle tissue, BRAIN, and the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. .
Alanine Dehydrogenase .
L-Alanine Dehydrogenase .
Dehydrogenase, Alanine .
Dehydrogenase, L-Alanine .
L Alanine Dehydrogenase .
An NAD-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the reversible DEAMINATION of L-ALANINE to PYRUVATE and AMMONIA. The enzyme is needed for growth when ALANINE is the sole CARBON or NITROGEN source. It may also play a role in CELL WALL synthesis because L-ALANINE is an important constituent of the PEPTIDOGLYCAN layer. .
beta-Alanine .
beta-Alanine Hydrochloride .
beta-Alanine, Calcium Salt (2:1) .
beta-Alanine, Monopotassium Salt .
beta-Alanine, Monosodium Salt .
3 Aminopropionic Acid .
Hydrochloride, beta-Alanine .
beta Alanine .
beta Alanine Hydrochloride .
beta Alanine, Monopotassium Salt .
beta Alanine, Monosodium Salt .
3-Aminopropionic Acid .
An amino acid formed in vivo by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. Since neuronal uptake and neuronal receptor sensitivity to beta-alanine have been demonstrated, the compound may be a false transmitter replacing GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID. A rare genetic disorder, hyper-beta-alaninemia, has been reported. .
