Introduction of Product
Tryptophan (Tryptophan), also known as β-indolylalanine, chemical formula C11H12N2O2, is one of the essential amino acids in the human body. The appearance is white or slightly yellow crystalline or crystalline powder, odorless, slightly bitter taste. Slightly soluble in water, very slightly soluble in ethanol, insoluble in chloroform, soluble in formic acid, soluble in sodium hydroxide test solution or dilute hydrochloric acid. Tryptophan is an important precursor of auxin biosynthesis in plants. Its structure is similar to IAA, and it is ubiquitous in higher plants. It is also a precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter in the body. It can be used as a nutritional supplement for pregnant women and a special milk powder for infants. It can be used for niacin deficiency disease (pellagra).Tryptophan can regulate mental rhythm and improve sleep as a depressant.

Function and Application of Product
Tryptophan be used for Plant
Tryptophan is an important precursor of auxin biosynthesis in plants. Its structure is similar to IAA, and it is ubiquitous in higher plants. Auxin can be synthesized from tryptophan in two ways:
(1) Tryptophan was firstly oxidized to form indole acetone, and then decarboxylated to form indole acetaldehyde; The indole acetaldehyde was finally oxidized to indole acetic acid under the catalysis of the corresponding enzyme.
(2) Tryptophan is first decarboxylated to form tryptamine, and then oxidized by tryptamine to form indole acetic acid.
Tryptophan be used for animal
Tryptophan can participate in the update of plasma protein in animals, and promote riboflin to play a role, but also contribute to the synthesis of niacin and heme, can significantly increase the fetal antibodies of pregnant animals, lactating cows and sows can promote lactation. When livestock and poultry are deficient in tryptophan, growth is halted, body weight is lost, fat accumulation is reduced, and testes of breeding male are atrophied. In medicine, it is used as an agent to prevent and cure the malady.
