How are essential amino acids made?

Postby krompir2 » Wed Nov 14, 2012 12:45 pm

Hello!
We've all heard of essential amino acids, which can not be synthesised in our own body. My question is, why can't we do that and also how do they come in our food? What biochemical reactions in animals or plants are responsible for that?
I appreciate all of your answers.

Because we do not have responsible enzymes.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Proteins/Aminoacids are responsible for the structure and metabolism of the organisms.
