TitleInterplay between microbial D-amino acids and host D-amino acid oxidase modifies murine mucosal defense and gut microbiota
Study TypeOther
Abstract While L-amino acids are the building blocks for proteins synthesized in ribosomes in all kingdoms of life, D-amino acids (D-aa) are important in non-ribosome based functions. Mammals synthesize D-Ser and D-Asp, primarily in the central nervous system, where D-Ser is critical for neurotransmission. .. [more]
