Among the gene's many amino acids are two called valine (or "val") and methionine ( "met").
For many years, scientists have been impressed with the ability of leucine, valine, and isoleucine to augment muscle mass.
The branch-chain amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine have been administered to test subjects with positive results.
What I did get was 3512 mg of isoleucine, 5320 mg leucine, and 4516 mg valine…not yet optimal but at least a start while I see what changes I might need with metformin ER and Maxzide.
This is because the protein elevates plasma levels of the other large neutral amino acids (LNAA) (valine, leucine, isoleucine, tryptophan, tyrosine) more than those of phenylalanine.
Coadministration with aspartame of the LNAA valine, which competes with phenylalanine for passage across the blood-brain barrier (4,21), protected mice from the seizure-promoting effects of the sweetener; in contrast, alanine, an amino acid which does not compete with phenylalanine for brain uptake, failed to attenuate aspartame's effect on PTZ-induced seizures.
The PROOF of what I am saying is found in scientific papers wherein it is found that when the protease cuts the viral strands, it cuts it at DIFFERENT lengths EVERY time, to which it should always be a valine at the end but is a different amino acid every time.
While others may send each other romantic valentines, scientists send each other valinetines, named after the illustrious molecule valine, one of the twenty amino acids that act as the building blocks for all of the diverse proteins in your body.

A Kozak translation initiation site (containing the nucleotide sequence A/GCCAT) was also introduced by insertion of valine as the second amino acid.
