carnosine

 [kahr´no-sēn]
a dipeptide composed of beta-alanine and histidine, found in skeletal muscle of vertebrates.

car·no·sine

(kar'nō-sēn),
N-β-alanyl-l-histidine; the dominant nonprotein nitrogenous component of brain tissue, first found in relatively high amounts in muscle; chelates copper and activates myosin ATPase.

carnosine

/car·no·sine/ (-sēn) a dipeptide composed of β-alanine and histidine, found in skeletal muscle and the brain in humans; it may be a neurotransmitter.

carnosine

[kär′nōsēn]
Etymology: L, caro,
a dipeptide composed of beta-alanine and histidine, in humans found in skeletal muscle and in the brain, particularly in the primary olfactory pathways. It may play a role as a neurotransmitter.

carnosine

A dipeptide composed of beta-alanine and histidine that is concentrated in skeletal muscle and the brain. While its function is unknown, carnosine has antioxidant properties, counteracts glycation, chelates divalent metal ions and acts as a buffer, stabilising the pH of anaerobically contracting muscle.
