Description

General description

L-Threonine is a naturally occurring amino acid belonging to the aspartate family of amino acids.

Application

L-Threonine has been used for the following :
• To study the effect of heat on homoserine kinase activity
• In Plackett–Burman analysis and then to study the effect of selected amino acids on monoclonal antibody production in CHO cells
• As a substrate to determine the L-threonine dehydrogenase activity
• To study the effect of L-Threonine on the growth rate of P. putida, to check for its tolerance towards L-Threonine
