Amino acids carry two functional groups: an amine group (-NH2) and a carboxylic acid group (-COOH). They are different because they have different side chains (R groups) attached to an alpha carbon that is specific to each amino acid.
Key elements in the 500 amino acids are carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, but other elements can be found in the side chains of certain amino acids.
the elements that compose it
different side chains (R groups) attached to an α carbon
its because of the R groups in proteins. All of the peoteins are different, therefore each of the amino acid id different.
Their side group makes them unique, they also contain nitrogen which makes them different from carbs and fats.
the side group
There is part of an amino acid molecule that is called the R group or side chain.For example, the side chain of the amino acid called glycine is a single hydrogen atom. The side chain is what differs from amino acid to amino acid.
their amino acid sequence
The R group is the part of an amino acid that makes it different from other amino acids (every amino acid has a different R group). For example: The R group of Glycine is H The R group of Alanine is CH3
The basic structure of an amino acid is HXN-CHR-CO2H, where, in the 20 most common biological amino acids, X=hydrogen. The R group attached to the amino acid base is what makes up the difference.
A general structure of an aminoacid contain: a group from a carboxylic acid, an amino group and another chain different for each aminoacid.
The "R" group
The "R" group is different in different kinds of amino acids. The "R" group can be a number of different molecules that are attached to the alpha carbon.
Every amino acid consists of a carbon to which an amine (-NH2) group, a carboxylic acid (-COOH) group and a hydrogen (-H) atom is attached. What makes an amino acid unique is the attachment of a fourth side chain called an R group. There are 20 different amino acids found in humans but over 500 are known to occur in nature.
The amount of amino acid that company puts in the battery.
The 'R' group (side-chain).
The peptide bond.
Yes because once an amino acid is added to the protein chain, the transfer RNA is released into the cytoplasm and can pick up another amino acid.
The bond between the carboxyl group of one amino acid and the amino group of another amino acid is referred to as a "peptide" bond. It is an amide.
tRNA makes amino acids in the cytoplasm.
Amino acid (alpha) should contain.. 1. A carbon atom 2. An amine group attached to the carbon 3. A hydrogen attached to the carbon 4. A carboxylic acid group butched to the carbon 5. And a side chain which varies among amino acids and makes different unique amino acids..
The R group is an organic substituent in amino acids, different for each amino acid.
It depends on the role of the amino acid that is altered. One amino acid might be replaced with no measurable effect on the protein's function; replacing another might cause a total loss of function.
A codon of nucleotides codes for an amino acid. The combination of nucleotides in a codon determines the amino acid the codon makes.
