Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Principal neurotransmitter for fast synaptic excitation.

L-Aspartic acid is a natural proteinogenic amino acid that may be used in the formulation of cell culture media and in protein and polypeptide synthesis systems and procedures. L-Aspartic acid, an NMDA receptor agonist and non-specific glutamate receptor agonist, is used to differentiate and study the mechanisms of NMDA receptors.
