L-Mimosine is a attenuate bulb non-protein amino acid, chemically agnate to tyrosine. It is a toxic amino acid, arresting the development of beef at the G1 phase. The amalgam of the amino acerbic hypusine by deoxyhypusyl hydroxylase is blocked by L-Mimosine; hypusine is all-important for the action of eIF-5A (eukaryotic admission agency 5A), and inhibition of its amalgam leads to abeyance of the corpuscle cycle. L-Mimosine is an inhibitor of DBH, eIF5A and Tyrosinase.
