The methodologies for the analysis of D-amino acids in biological materials have been reviewed, including the use of enzymes, gas and liquid chromatography with chiral stationary phases and diastereomer derivatization with chiral reagents followed by GC or HPLC separation.
The distribution of D-amino acids in the body, their origin, metabolism and possible roles in human diseases are discussed.
