Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Compound Class: a standard α amino acid

Synonyms: a protein-building amino acid, a proteinogenic amino acid

Superclasses: an amino acid or its derivative an amino acid an alpha amino acid

Summary:
This compound class contains the standard set of 20 protein-buliding amino acids. Note that L-proline is included in this group although technically it is not an amino acid. This class does not include other amino acids even if they have been implicated in protein synthesis.

Instances:
glycine ,
L-alanine ,
L-arginine ,
L-asparagine ,
L-aspartate ,
L-cysteine ,
L-glutamate ,
L-glutamine ,
L-histidine ,
L-isoleucine ,
L-leucine ,
L-lysine ,
L-methionine ,
L-phenylalanine ,
L-proline ,
L-serine ,
L-threonine ,
L-tryptophan ,
L-tyrosine ,
L-valine

SMILES: C([N+])([R])C([O-])=O
