Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

β-Alanine, a β amino acid, is a component of pantothenic acid and the rate limiting amino acid in the biosynthesis of the histidinyl antioxidant dipeptides carnosine and anserine.

β-Alanine, a β−amino acid, is a component of pantothenic acid and the rate-limiting amino acid in the biosynthesis of the histidinyl antioxidant dipeptides carnosine and anserine. Endogenous β-amino acid that is a nonselective agonist at glycine receptors and a ligand for the G protein-coupled orphan receptor, TGR7 (MrgD). β-Alanine flux plays a cytoprotective role by supporting the osmotic stability of marine organisms, preimplantation mouse embryos and mammalian cells exposed to hypoxic stress.

β-Amino Acids and Homologs

Although they are less abundant than their α-analogues, β-amino acids occur in nature both in free form and bound to peptides. Oligomers composed exclusively of β-amino acids (so-called β-peptides) m...
