Methionine, organic compound, one of the 20 amino acids commonly found in animal proteins. Methionine is one of the several essential amino acids needed in the diet; the human body cannot synthesize it from simpler metabolites. Methionine supplies sulfur and other compounds required by the body for normal metabolism and growth. It is an important source of dietary sulfur. Methionine also belongs to a group of compounds called lipotropics; others in this group include choline, inositol, and betaine. Methionine is one of only two amino acids encoded by just one codon (AUG) in the standard genetic code (tryptophan, encoded by UGG, is the other). L-methionine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is minimally soluble in water. Its sulfur is non reactive.
Methionine is a sulfur-containing proteinogenic amino acid, acting as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of different phospholipids. It is important in single-carbon metabolism and helps the detoxification in the liver. Meanwhile, improper conversion of Methionine can lead to atherosclerosis.
