Amino Acids

Amino acids are a group of 20 different kinds of small molecules that link together in long chains to form proteins. They are often referred to as the building blocks of proteins.

The sequence of amino acids in a protein determines the structure and function of the protein. Each protein consists of a different sequence of amino acids linked together according to the genetic information encoded in DNA. Genes contain the code fassembling protein of the 20 amino acids necessary for human growth and function.

Amino acids are small chemical compounds that are the building blocks used to construct proteins. They are also the end product of protein digestion. The body uses 20 amino acids to build all of its proteins. Nine of these are called essential amino acids. Because they are not manufactured by the body, it is essential that we get them from our diet.

Amino acids are the basic structural units of proteins that play crucial roles in virtually all biological processes.
