Identify the amino acids that differ from each other by a single methyl or methylene group.
Gly and Ala; Ser and Thr; Val, Leu, and Ile; Asn and Gln; Asp and Glu.
The 20 standard amino acids are called
-amino acids. Certain
-amino acids are found in nature. Drawthe structure of
Identify the hydrogen bond donor and acceptor groups in asparagine.
Hydrogen bond donors:
-amino group, amide nitrogen. Hydrogen bond acceptors:
-carboxylate group,amide carbonyl.
Draw the dipeptide Asp-His at pH 7.0.
Calculate the number of possible pentapeptides that contain one residue each of Ala, Gly, His, Lys, andVal.
The first residue can be one of five residues, the second one of the remaining four, etc.
Determine the net charge of the predominant form of Asp at (a) pH 1.0, (b) pH 3.0, (c) pH 6.0, and (d) pH11.0.
