Identification of amino acids in Brazilian propolis


, : Identification of amino acids in Brazilian propolis. Zeitschrift fuer Naturforschung Section C Journal of Biosciences 51(1-2): 11-14

Amino acids of propolis samples from different origins were analysed and quantified. Seven of them presented almost the same percentage in all samples, indicating that bees may have obtained amino acids from three sources: plants, pollen contamination and from their own metabolism. The regeneration properties of propolis in relation to the presence of some amino acids are discussed.
