HideShow resource information

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They can join together to form a dipeptide.

They contain an amine group (basic group), a variable group, and a carboxyl group (acid group).

Primary protein structure: the list of amino acids and the sequence that they are in e.g. THY-AD-THY-SER. Held together by peptide bonds.

Secondary protein structure: either an alpha helix or…
