L-Asparagine is a non-essential amino acid that is involved in the metabolic control of cell functions in nerve and brain tissue. It is biosynthesized from ASPARTIC ACID and AMMONIA by asparagine synthetase. Alanine is an important source of energy for muscle tissue, the brain and central nervous system. Alanine strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies, and helps in the metabolism of sugars and organic acids. In mammals, asparagine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning it does not need to be present in the diet. Asparagine is classified as an amide because it is an amide derivative of aspartic acid. Asparagine functions as the protein anchor point for N-linked oligosaccharide-linked glycoproteins.
