Metabolism of L-theanine in tea leaves






JARQ Japan Agricultural Research Quarterly 21(1): 42-46

Metabolism of L-theanine in tea leaves

It was established that theanine hydrolase plays an important role in the metabolism of L-theanine during which it is first hydrolysed to glutamic acid and ethylamine. The ethylamine released is then oxidized to ammonia and acetaldehyde by amine oxidase.
