arginine

Biochemistry
A facultatively essential amino acid that contains a guanido group with a pKa > 12, which carries a positive charge at physiological pH; it becomes an essential amino acid when the body is under stress or injured.

Sources
Food—turkey, chicken and other meats.
 
Fringe medicine
An amino acid believed to decrease cancer risk, and given as a nutritional supplement; arginine stimulates sperm motility.
