Threonine amino acid molecule. Computer illustration showing the structure of a molecule of the amino acid threonine (C4.H9.NO3). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Threonine is an essential amino acid, which are unable to be produced by the body and must be sourced from the diet. It acts as a precursor to serine and glycine, which are amino acids necessary for muscle tissue production. Threonine supports digestive function, immune system, liver and cardiovascular function and the central nervous system (CNS).
