Caption

Computer artwork of the molecule of N-Formylmethionine, a proteinogenic non-standard amino acid, that plays a crucial part in the protein synthesis of bacteria, mitochondria and chloroplasts. N-Formylmethionine is a derivative of the amino acid Methionine and is coded by the same genetic codon, AUG. Because it is only present in proteins of bacterial origin, the human immune system uses it to recognize infectious agents. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen. Illustration.
