Presented first is a discussion of the routes of degradation of each amino acid when the pathway is directed toward oxidation of the amino acid for energy. Next follows a discussion of pathways of amino acid synthesis, and finally the use of amino acids for other important compounds in the body is described. Amino Acid Degradation Pathways Complete amino acid degradation ends up with the production of N, which is removed by incorporation into urea. Carbon skeletons are eventually oxidized as CO2 via the TCA cycle (also known as the Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle).

Of the acidic amino acids, aspartate and glutamate, are very low outside cells in plasma. 4). Important to bear in mind are the differences in the relative amounts of N contained in extracellular and intracellular amino acid pools and in protein itself. A physiologically normal person has approximately 55 mg of amino acid N/L outside cells in extracellular space and approximately 800 mg of amino acid N/L inside cells; this means that free amino acids are approximately 15-fold more abundant inside cells than outside cells (7).
