Amino Acids Definition
What Are Amino Acids?

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins which are indispensable for the growth and repair of the body. They band together in chains to form the stuff from which life is born. Amino acids are the intermediates in metabolism. The shape and other properties of each protein are dictated by the precise sequence of amino acids in it. Each amino acid consists of an alpha carbon atom to which is attached. There are 20 amino acids present and are classified into two, essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. The non-essential amino acids are synthesisd by the body and the essential amino acids cannot be synthesized by the body. But the essential amino acids gained by the body through food consumption. The 20 amino acids that are found within proteins convey a vast array of chemical versatility. The precise amino acid content, and the sequence of those amino acids, of a specific protein, is determined by the sequence of the bases in the gene that encodes that protein. The chemical properties of the amino acids of proteins determine the biological activity of the protein. Proteins contain within their amino acid sequences the necessary information to determine how that protein will fold into a three dimensional structure, and the stability of the resulting structure.
