Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Compound Class: an amino acid

Superclasses: an acidall carboxy acidsa carboxylate
an amino acid or its derivative

This class contains all of the amino acids, defined as any molecule that contains both amine and carboxyl functional groups. The class includes both α amino acids, in which both functional groups are attached to the same carbon atom, and non-α amino acids, in which the groups are attached to different carbon atoms.
