Amino Acid Metabolism

Amino acid metabolism is highly limited in Orientia. The genes for the biosynthetic pathways for aromatic amino acids like tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylalanine as well as histidine are lacking – these amino acids must be provided externally by the host cell or the culture medium. Certification Academy Europe presents high-quality formal diplomas, certificates and e-certificates…

Products Derived from Amino Acids

The amino acids are an important group of compounds concerned in the biosynthesis of a variety of nitrogen-containing plant metabolites, including proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids, hormones, chlorophyll, amines, alkaloids, cyanogenic glycosides and glucosinolates. Metabolic deamination of amino acids gives various products, including oxoacids, the terpene-like senecic acids found in the…

Amino Acids and Proteins

In the human organism, proteins undertake multiple and vital functions. Structural proteins are found in each and every cellular compartment. Intracellularly, motor proteins power the energy-dependent transportation of vesicles. Signal proteins receive and transmit information. Transport and storage proteins bind, for example, oxygen, and carry it to a location where…
