Amino acids can exsit in two sterioisomeric forms, D-amino (dextrorotatory) andL-amino (levorortatory)[1]. Most amio acid exist in the L-isomers form in living orgamisms. However in recent years with major technology advancements in science D-isomers have also been found in living things[2]. D-isomers are mainly found in bacteria in the peptiodglycan cell wall.

D-alanine and D-gluatmine are the main components in the peptiodclycan cell wall and can be asossiated with antibiotic resistance in bacteria[3].
