Occurrence and functions of free D-aspartate and its metabolizing enzymes.

Abstract

D-Aspartate is one of a few D-amino acids that attracted attention at an early date, since it was detected in various tissues of mammals as a protein component. The occurrence of free D-aspartate in nature was recognized a little later, and raised questions about its physiological functions and metabolism. This amino acid has been gradually accepted, based… (More)
