Amino Acids and Derivatives
Amino acids play well-known and significant roles in life as the
building blocks of proteins and also in a variety of functions in
All amino acids have an amine group (NH2
) and a carboxyl
group (COOH), which, in alpha amino acids, are bonded to the same
carbon atom - known as the alpha carbon. Alpha amino acids differ
in the side chain (R group) that is bonded to the alpha
Compounds are labeled on the amine group, carboxyl group or on
sulfur (in the cases of cysteine and methionine) to create
