Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0002520

NCI Thesaurus Code: C231  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein

Semantic Type: Pharmacologic Substance

Semantic Type: Biologically Active Substance

NCIt Definition: Any organic compounds containing amino (-NH2) and carboxyl (-COOH) groups. In biochemistry, used to refer to the twenty-plus L-alpha-amino acids found in proteins.

NCI-GLOSS Definition: One of several molecules that join together to form proteins. There are 20 common amino acids found in proteins.

CSP Definition: organic acid containing one or more amino groups, especially any of a group that make up proteins and are important to living cells; those that are nonessential can be synthesized by the body while essential acids must be obtained through the diet; there are also several important amino acids, such as the neurotransmitter g-aminobutyric acid, that have no relation to proteins.

MSH Definition: Organic compounds that generally contain an amino (-NH2) and a carboxyl (-COOH) group. Twenty alpha-amino acids are the subunits which are polymerized to form proteins.

NPO Definition: A carboxylic acid containing one or more amine groups.
