L-(+)-2-Aminobutyric acid is used in the biosynthesis of nonribosomal peptides. It acts as a receptor antagonist. It is also used as a chiral reagent. Further, it is used in the determination of substrate of glutamyl cysteine acid synthase. In addition to this, it is also utilized as a drug intermediate.
