Main Function L-proline is one of the 20 amino acids that are used to synthesize proteins by the human body.
This amino acid is encoded in the human genetic code with the codons CCA, CCC, CCG and CCU. L-proline is the only proteinogenic amino acid that is a secondary amine, meaning L-proline has been used as a component of HG-DMEM for chondrocyte differentiation and for the culture of chondrocyte-like cells. Proline is a cyclic, non-essential, hydrophobic amino acid. It is a proteinogenic amino acid which is crucial for primary metabolism. In peptide chains, proline residues confer structural constraints and enhance the susceptibility of proximal peptide bonds to protease activity.
