Asparagine amino acid molecule. Computer illustration showing the structure of a molecule of the amino acid asparagine (C4.H8.N2.O3). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). This pH neutral amino acid is involved in the metabolic control of cell functions in nerve and brain tissue. It is non-essential in humans, meaning the body can synthesize it. Asparagine is biosynthesized from aspartic acid and ammonia by the asparagine synthetase enzyme.
