A = alanine
The RAST KEGG viewer says there is no way to convert between pyruvate and alanine, however, the RAST spreadsheet calls enzyme (an alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase).

C = cysteine

D = aspartic acid

E = glutamic acid

F = phenylalanine

G = glycine
Appears to be missing EC numbers and The RAST spreadsheet calls

H = histidine
Appears to be complete.

I = isoleucine
Appears to be complete.

K = lysine
Appears to be complete.

L = leucine
Appears to be complete.

M = methionine

N = asparagine
Our organism appears to have no enzyme that makes L-aasparagine from L-aspartate (asparaginases). On the RAST spreadsheet, however, RAST calls an "asparagine family protein" in bps from 1139281-1140141 (EC

P = proline
Appears that it can be synthesized from argine, but cannot be synthesized on its own.

Q = glutamine
Appears to be fairly complete when compared with Haloarcula marismortui, with exceptions being a missing NAD synthase (EC, semialdehyde dehydrogenase (EC1.2.1.16), a 4-aminobutyrate aminotransferase (EC, and a carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase (EC A glutamyl-tRNA(Gln) amidotransferase subunit (EC appears to be missing, but the RAST spreadsheet calls several glutamyl-tRNA amidotransferase subunits, listing the EC as 6.3.5.-. Also, an arginine decarboxylase (EC appears to be missing, but the RAST spreadsheet calls an arginine decarboxylase with this EC number.

R = arginine
Can produce from proline, but does not appear to be able to synthesize arginine on its own.

S = serine
Matches Haloarcula marismortui, except in RAST KEGG diagram, it appears to be missing enzyme, which is a CDP-diacylglycerol-serine O-phosphatidyltransferase. However, according to the RAST spreadsheet, there is a CDP-diacylglycerol-serine O-phosphatidyltransferase from bps 1440328-1439621.

T = threonine
Appears to be complete.

V = valine
Appears to be complete.

W = tryptophan

Y = tyrosine
