The branched chain amino acids play an essential role in supporting lean muscle mass, especially among older adults.
The branched chain amino acids, valine, leucine and isoleucine, unlike most other amino acids, are oxidised by muscle cells, providing a source of cellular energy as ATP and phosphocreatine (7).
The three essential branched chain amino acids are leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
It will be obvious from the foregoing that there are no clear boundaries between these three recognized classes of petroleum wax, and that a continuous spectrum exists, ranging from the lowest melting point simplest paraffin wax of almost 100% alkane content to the somewhat higher melting point and vastly more complex microcrystalline wax containing almost 100% branched chain iso alkane or `non normal' high molecular weight hydrocarbons.
