Proline amino acid molecule. Computer illustration showing the structure of a molecule of the amino acid proline (C5.H9.NO2). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Proline is a non-essential (synthesised by the body) amino acid that plays an important role in protein synthesis. It is one of the principal amino acids needed by the body to build collagen. It is manufactured mainly from ornithine, glutamine and glutamate in the liver.
