Methionine is a nutritionally essential, sulfur-containing amino acid found in low levels in plants, which often limits its value as a source of dietary protein to humans and animals. Methionine is also a fundamental metabolite in plant cells since, through its first metabolite, S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), it controls the level of several key metabolites, such as ethylene, polyamines and biotin. SAM is also the primary methyl group donor that regulates different processes in plants. Despite its… CONTINUE READING
