Description

General description

Alanine is a non essential amino acid.

Application

D-Alanine has been used:
• as an amine donor for ω-transaminase mediated (R)-amination
• as a substrate for the treatment of D-amino acid oxidase (DAAO )-transfected cells
• to measure the heat capacity of L-alanine single crystal

Packaging

5, 25, 100 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

D-Alanine is the non-proteinogenic form of alanine which is used in bacterial cell wall biosynthesis. D-Alanine is used to study the specificity and kinetics of alanine racemase(s) (alaR).
