Clinic significance

There are a total of 20 amino acids. Of these, 8 are referred to as essential (leucine, isoleucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine) because they can only be obtained from food and therefore must be present in the diet. Amino acid levels are highly variable and their metabolism is dependent on hormonal, metabolic and dietary factors. Pathological modifications of amino acids may be due to either metabolic problems (impaired kidney or liver function) or enzyme deficiencies.
