PageDescriptionTags
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) Branched-chain amino acids consist of isoleucine, leucine and valine that have branched-side chain. Since the BCAAs are abundantly found in skeletal muscle, they are often used for a supplement food. Isoleucine <jmol ile.pdb.gz 150 150></jmol> Leucine , , ,
