MetaCyc Compound Class: an amino acid

Superclasses: an amino acid or its derivative

Summary:
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.
