Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Our bodies break down the proteins we eat into amino acids, which in turn is used to create ate proteins that need to operate. Proteins serve many di erent functions: Structural, transport, catalysis, contraction, and protection against disease.
Amino acids are also involved in many non-protein reactions. Aminoacids
are used to produce neurotransmitters, hormones and other metabolites
such as creatine or citrulline. Amino acids can also be used as a source of
energy.

There are 20 amino acids that make up the majority of mammalian proteins. Each of the amino acids
acid has a similar structure, but di er in the type of side chain attached to
each α-carbon. The side chains confer di erent properties of each amino acid
acid, and are responsible for the three "native" structure
each protein.
