ApplicationsL-Anserine (cas# 584-85-0) is a useful research chemical.

Anserine (β-alanyl-N-methylhistidine) is a dipeptide containing β-alanine and 1-methylhistidine. It is normally absent from human tissues and body fluids, and its appearance there is an artifact of diet and serum carnosinase deficiency.
