Biochem/physiol Actions

Methionine is an essential amino acid which acts a precursor for transmethylation and transsulphuration. In proteins, L-methionine is the biologically active form. The adenosylation of methionine results in the formation of S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM), which serves as a methyl donor to various substances. L-Methionine′s metabolic product glutathione is known to regulate immune response and has antiviral action.
