This submission is a 3-dimensional ball and stick model of an alanine molecule. Alanine is an amino acid, organic compounds that combine to form proteins, which are one of the four building blocks of life. Alanine in particular, is used to make proteins, and helps strengthen your immune system. We interact with this molecule daily, as it provides energy for your muscles and central nervous system. Alanine is important and we, our bodies, interact with this molecule every day, which is why it was chosen for this submission. Alanine is written as C₃H₇NO₂ (3 carbon atoms, 7 hydrogen atoms, 1 nitrogen atom, and 2 oxygen atoms) and has a molar mass of 89.09 g/mol.
