Application

L-Lysine is an essential amino acid. It is synthesized from naturally-occurring aspartic acid in plants and bacteria. The monohydrochloride version is the most commonly used form of lysine with improved solubility and is a more efficient way to supply L-Lysine for either human or cell culture use. It is used as a cell culture media component in the commercial biomanufacture of therapeutic recombinant proteins and monoclonal antibodies.
