Drug Drug Description Penicillamine A chelator used to treat Wilson's disease, cystinuria, and rheumatoid arthritis. Acetylcysteine A medication that can be used as a mucolytic in patients with certain lung conditions and as an antidote for acetaminophen overdose. Tiopronin A thiol agent indicated for the prevention of kidney stone formation in patients with severe homozygous cystinuria. Thiorphan A potent inhibitor of membrane metalloendopeptidase (enkephalinase). Thiorphan potentiates morphine-induced analgesia and attenuates naloxone-precipitated withdrawal symptoms. Homocysteine Homocysteine is a thiol-containing amino acid formed by a demethylation of methionine. Carbocisteine A expectorant mucolytic used in the relief of respiratory of COPD and other conditions associated with increased mucus viscosity. L-cysteic acid L-cysteic acid is a beta-sulfoalanine. It is an amino acid with a C-terminal sulfonic acid group which has been isolated from human hair oxidized with permanganate. It occurs normally in... Methionine An amino acid commonly found as a component in total parenteral nutrition. Cysteine An amino acid commonly found as a component of total parenteral nutrition and used as an antidote for acetaminophen overdose. Ademetionine S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe) is used as a drug in Europe for the treatment of depression, liver disorders, fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis. It has also been introduced into the United States market as... Cystine An oxidated derivative of the amino acid cysteine found in various nutritional products, acne treatments, and creams to treat cervical injury or inflammation. N-Acetylmethionine An amino acid used as a peritoneal dialysis treatment in patients with renal failure and nutritional therapy in patients with nutritional deficiency or post-infection weakness. S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine 5'-S-(3-Amino-3-carboxypropyl)-5'-thioadenosine. Formed from S-adenosylmethionine after transmethylation reactions. S-Methylcysteine Not Available L-methionine (R)-S-oxide Not Available 4-methylthio-2-oxobutanoic acid Not Available Selenocysteine A naturally occurring amino acid in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms. It is found in tRNAs and in the catalytic site of some enzymes. The genes for glutathione peroxidase and... Cysteine-S-acetamide Not Available S-Phosphocysteine Not Available L-methionine sulfone Not Available Trifluoromethionine Not Available S-sulphocysteine Not Available N-Formylmethionine N-Formylmethionine is effective in the initiation of protein synthesis. The initiating methionine residue enters the ribosome as N-formylmethionyl tRNA. This process occurs in Escherichia coli and other bacteria as well... S-Benzylcysteine Not Available Racecadotril An anti-secretory enkephalinase inhibitor useful in the treatment of diarrhea. Bucillamine Bucillamine has been used in trials studying the treatment and prevention of Gout and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Methylselenocysteine Methylselenocysteine has been used in trials studying the prevention of Prostate Carcinoma and No Evidence of Disease. Buthionine sulfoximine Buthionine sulfoximine has been used in trials studying the treatment of Neuroblastoma and Melanoma (Skin). Racemethionine A preparation of methionine that includes a mixture of D-methionine and L-methionine isomers. Methionine sulfoximine Not Annotated Acetylcysteine zinc Not Available Acetylcysteine amide Not Available Desmeninol An amino acid derivative indicated in the management of balanced protein metabolism in patients with renal dysfunction.
