L-Phenylalanine (Abbreviated Phe) is an essential amino acid and is the only form of phenylalanine found in proteins. It is one of the 18 common amino acids and one of the eight essential amino acids at the human body.
As a nutritional supplement, L-phenylalanine can be viewed as a benzyl group substituted for the methyl group of alanine, or a phenyl group in place of terminal hydrogen of alanine. Most in the body by the phenylalanine hydroxylase catalysis oxidation into tyrosine, and synthetic with tyrosine important neurotransmitters and hormones, to participate in the body metabolism of sugar and fat metabolism.
L-phenylalanine is a bioactive aromatic amino acid. It is a necessary amino acid that can't be self-synthesized by humans and animals. It is necessary for a person to intake 2.2g of L-phenylalanine every day. As one of the eight necessary amino acids for the human body, it has been widely used in the pharmaceutical and food additive industry. It is an important ingredient of amino acid injection. In the food processing industry, L-phenylalanine can be added into bakery foods. And the nutrition of phenylalanine can be enhanced and by amido-carboxylation with glucoside.
L-phenylalanine can enhance food's aroma and keep the balance of necessary amino acids. In the pharmaceutical industry, L-phenylalanine is used as intermediate of some amino anticancer pharmaceuticals such as formylmerphalanum and etc. It is also used to manufacture adrenalin, thyroxin and melanin. Another important application is to synthesize aspartame with L-aspartic acid.
L - phenylalanine is the main raw material of the important food additive - sweetener Aspartame (Aspartame). As one of the essential amino acids in the body, L-phenylalanine is mainly used for amino acid transfusion and amino acid drugs in the pharmaceutical industry.
1) L-phenylalanine are important food additive - sweetener Aspartame (Aspartame) of the main raw material, the human body's essential amino acids in one of the pharmaceutical industry is mainly used for amino acid transfusion and amino acid drugs.
2) L-phenylalanine is a human body that can't synthesize a kind of essential amino acids. Food industry mainly for Food sweetener aspartame synthesis raw material;
3) Also can be used as a nutritional supplement.
