MetaCyc Compound Class: a non-standard α amino acid

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

Summary:
This compound class stands for α amino acids other than the 20 standard protein building amino acids. An α amino acid is defined as any molecule that contains both amine and carboxyl functional groups, attached to the same carbon atom.

Child Classes: a diphthamide-[translation elongation factor 2] (0) , a diphthine methyl ester-[translation elongation factor 2] (0) , a diphthine-[translation elongation factor 2] (0) , an L-1-phosphatidylserine (32) , an L-cysteine-S-conjugate (1) , an L-lysine or meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate (2) , DL-allothreonine (2) , L-methionine S-oxide (2) , ornithine (2) , selenocysteine (1)
