Methionine contains sulfur, an important component of cartilage building blocks such as proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. Methionine is incorporated into tissue proteins and enzymes and is a component of active peptides, including methionine enkephalin and various endorphins. One of the main roles of methionine is as a methyl donor, contributing to numerous physiological pathways in the body including formation of myelin components.
