Solution

The correct option is C amino acids
Amino acid synthesis can occur in a variety of ways. For example, amino acids can be synthesized from precursor molecules by simple steps. Alanine, aspartate, and glutamate are synthesized from keto acids called pyruvate, oxaloacetate, and α-ketoglutarate, respectively, by a transamination reaction step.
