    Basic Information of L-Lysine

    Chemical Name: L-Lysine

    Cas No.: 56-87-1

    Molecular Formula: C6H14N2O2

    Chemical Structure:



    Lysine (symbol Lys or K), encoded by the codons AAA and AAG, is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. It contains an α-amino group (which is in the protonated −NH3+ form under biological conditions), an α-carboxylic acid group (which is in the deprotonated −COO− form under biological conditions), and a side chain lysyl ((CH2)4NH2), classifying it as a charged (at physiological pH), aliphatic amino acid. It is essential in humans, meaning the body cannot synthesize it and thus it must be obtained from the diet.

    Lysine is a base, as are arginine and histidine. The ε-amino group often participates in hydrogen bonding and as a general base in catalysis. The ε-ammonium group (NH3+) is attached to the fourth carbon from the α-carbon, which is attached to the carboxyl (C=OOH) group.

    L-lysine plays a particularly important role in the immune system. It is involved in the development of antibodies and has important antiviral properties.

    Studies show that this particular amino acid is especially beneficial for safeguarding against herpes virus. Lysine has been shown to decrease occurrences of anxiety1 and it assists with the formation of collagen and muscle tissue.

    It is also involved in protein biosynthesis, especially in building collagen together with the amino acids Glycine and Proline. An L-lysine deficiency may therefore result in broken skin, fragile nails and in extreme cases loss of hair.

    There is also evidence that L-lysine increases the effectiveness of L-arginine in promoting human growth hormone (HGH) release. Suminski and colleagues found that HGH was increased when weightlifters ingested Arginine and Lysine without exercise2.
