Application

L-proline has been used as a component of high-glucose-Dulbecco′s modified Eagle′s medium (HG-DMEM) for chondrocyte differentiation and for the culture of chondrocyte-like cells. It has also been used as a component of yeast nitrogen base for yeast cultures.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Proline is a cyclic, non-essential, hydrophobic amino acid. It is a proteinogenic amino acid which is crucial for primary metabolism. In peptide chains, proline residues confer structural constraints and enhance the susceptibility of proximal peptide bonds to protease activity.
