Aspartate is an amino acid with the chemical formula C4H7NO4 and a molecular weight of 133.10 g/mol. It is a non essential amino acid that the human body can obtain through synthesis. Aspartate participates in various biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, energy metabolism, and neurotransmitter synthesis. In addition, aspartic acid can also be converted into glutamic acid, and the two are converted to each other in the body, participating in the glutamate aspartic acid cycle, which is an important amino acid metabolism pathway. The main sources of aspartic acid in food include meat, fish, dairy products, and legumes.
