@angeleojo,
A clue is "essential v Nonessential" amino acids, eukaryotic proteinogenic amino acids. And evolution. ALL have something to do with it.

LAst hint: some essential amino acids are made by the breakdown of others.Proteinogenic amino acids are those amino acids that can be found in unique proteins and actually require unique cellular machinery in any organism for their production.
