There are 20 common or standard amino acids (alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, proline, serine, threonine, tryptophan, tyrosine and valine). All the amino acids (except proline, which is an imino acid) have as a common denominator a free unsubstituted amino group and a free carboxyl group.
Organisms vary in their ability to synthesize amino acids and in the forms of nitrogen used for this purpose. On this basis, amino acids can be classified into two types, the essential and the non-essential. Man and the albino rat can only synthesize 10 of the 20 common amino acids (alanine, asparagine, aspartate, cysteine, glutamine, glutamate, glycine, proline, serine and tyrosine). g. arginine and histidine) that they cannot supply nutritional requirements and have to be obtained from the diet.
