Our proteins are composed of homochiral monomers, exclusively of L-amino acids (L-AAs), while D-amino acids (D-AAs) are thought to be non-proteinogenic. This is crucial because enzymes have stereo selective binding modes and therefore, do not cooperate with proteins partially or fully consist of D-amino acids.
