Proteins and amino acids

Proteins and amino acids provide substrate for many enzymatic processes. Amino acids are not only structural elements of specific tissue proteins, but also act as neurotransmitters (glutamic and aspartic acids, glycine, etc.). The daily requirement for protein is 70 g. In a number of pathological conditions (including body temperature above 39 ° C, severe operations, burns, disorders of absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, etc.), it increases. In these cases, proteins and mixtures of amino acids are used: albumin, dextran, Aminosol KE, Aminosteril, etc. Parenteral administration of proteins sensitizes the body and can lead to anaphylactic reactions. They will not be if you use a mixture of individual amino acids (antibodies are not formed). The best assimilation of amino acids is noted with intravenous drip administration, although if necessary, they can be introduced through a tube into the stomach. To ensure adequate artificial nutrition, proteins and amino acids are often supplemented with glucose solutions, vitamins, microelements, etc.
Below is a list of proteins and amino acids:

  • Methionine
  • Arginine
  • L-Aspartic Acid
  • Threonine
  • Cystine
  • Beta-Alaninum
  • Taurine
  • Glycine
  • Arginine glutamate (Arginini glutamas)
  • Glutamic acid
  • Levocarnitine
  • Keto analogs of amino acids ()
