Lysine has a net positive charge, which makes it one of the three basic (by charge) amino acids. Lysine plays a role in the production of antibodies and lowers triglyceride levels. Lysine is needed for proper growth and bone development in children and to maintain a proper nitrogen balance in adults. Lysine helps in the absorption and conservation of calcium and plays an important role in the formation of collagen, a component of cartilage and connective tissue.
|Micromole per liter||µmol/L = mcmol/L = umol/L = µM/L = mcM/L = uM/L = micromol/L|
|Milligram per liter||mg/L = millig/L = milligram/L = mg/liter|
|Milligram per deciliter||mg/dL = millig/dL = milligram/dL|
|Milligram per 100 milliliters||mg/100mL = millig/100mL = milligram/100mL|
|Milligram percent||mg% = millig% = milligram%|
|Microgram per milliliter||µg/mL = mcg/mL = ug/mL= microg/mL = microgram/mL|
