Product Description

Tryptophan is an essential amino acid in the human diet. Its functions as a serotonin precursor have increased interest in its ability to treat depression and epilepsy; however, there has been inconclusive evidence in clinical trials regarding its efficacy in humans. Safety has also been a concern.

It is widely used in molecular genetics as an auxotrophic genetic marker in yeast gene disruption experiments.
