Tryptophan amino acid molecule. Computer illustration showing the structure of a molecule of the amino acid tryptophan (C11.H12.N2.O2). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which are unable to be produced by the body and must be sourced from the diet. It plays an important role in the synthesis of proteins and is a precursor to the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin.
