It is one of 8 kinds of essential amino acid and can be compounded by taking the isobutyraldehyde as material. It is white crystal or crystalline powder, and is soluble in water and hardly soluble in ethyl alcohol.
Valine is one of 20 kinds of amino acid that forms protein; its chemical name is 1-2-Amino-3-methylbutyric acid. It belongs to branched chain amino acid and is also one of 8 kinds of essential amino acid. It works with other two kinds of high concentration amino acid (isoleucine and leucine) to improve body normal growth, repair tissue, regulate blood glucose and provide with required energy. During strenuous exercise physical activities, valine can provide muscle with additional energy to produce glucose so as to prevent myasthenia. It also helps to clean up redundant nitrogen (potential toxin) from liver and transport nitrogen required by body to every party.
Valine is a kind of essential amino acid which is means that it can’t be formed in human body and only obtained from diet. Its natural food sources include cereal, dairy product, lentinus edodes, mushroom, peanut, soyabean protein and meat. Otherwise D- valine also exists in some actinomycin (such as valinomycin).
