DL-Lysine monohydrate is a racemic mixture of the D-Lysine and L-Lysine. Lysine is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins[1].

In Vitro

D-Lysine produces from L-Lysine by successive chemical racemization and microbial asymmetric degradation. L-Lysine is enantiomer of D-Lysine. D-Lysine exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. D-Lysine is a potentially toxic compound[1].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
