aspartate

Biochemistry A nonessential amino acid that has a central role in transferring amino groups by aspartate aminotransferase in the liver; in proteins, aspartate takes the form of its amide, asparagine. See Aspartame, Aspartate aminotransferase.

aspartic acid or aspartate (D, Asp)

one of 20 AMINO ACIDS common in proteins. It has an extra carboxyl group and is therefore acidic in solution. The ISOELECTRIC POINT of aspartic acid is 2.8.

A salt or ester of aspartic acid.

aspartate

Asp; any salt of aspartic acid; aspartic acid in dissociated form.
