Aspartic acid (abbreviated as Asp or D; encoded by the codons [GAU and GAC]), also known as aspartate, is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Similar to all other amino acids it contains an amino group and a carboxylic acid. Its α-amino group is in the protonated –NH+. 3 form under physiological conditions, while its α-carboxylic acid group is deprotonated −COO− under physiological conditions. Aspartic acid has an acidic side chain (CH2COOH) which reacts with other amino acids, enzymes and proteins in the body.
1. Electrolyte supplementation is used for amino acid infusion, potassium, calcium and other inorganic ion supplements, fatigue restorer, etc.
2. Potassium aspartate and magnesium injection or oral liquid for cardiac glycoside poisoning caused by arrhythmia and premature beat, tachycardia, low potassium, low blood magnesium, heart failure, myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver and other diseases.
3. Promoter for ammonia antidote, liver function, fatigue recovery agent, such as pharmaceuticals, can L-sodium amino acid food additive and all kinds of cool and refreshing beverage additives, also can make biochemical reagents, culture medium and organic synthesis intermediates.
4. Used in synthetic sweeteners, medicine for heart disease, as liver function promoter, ammonia disinfectant, fatigue remover and amino acid infusion components.
