General description

L-2-Aminobutyric acid is synthesized from L-threonine and L-aspartic acid through a ⍺-transamination reaction. It is an L-alanine analogue with an ethyl side chain.

Biochem/physiol Actions

L-α-Aminobutyric acid (AABA) is an isomer of the non-natural amino acid aminobutyric acid with activity in the γ-glutamyl cycle that regulates glutathione biosynthesis. Recently AABA has been studied as a supplement to in vitro maturation medium (NCSU 23 medium) for culture of oozytes and embryos. This product has been qualified for use in cell culture. AABA is also used as a substitute amino acid for alanine in studies on peptide function.
