Worksheet Week #2 Amino Acids and Protein Structure KKD 2009 1) Spell out the secret code below. . SEATTLE 2) As you can tell whoever drew those amino acids doesn’t know anything about pH. Use your pen and show what each amino acid would look like at physiological pH. What would be each NET charge? S = 0; E = -1; A = 0, T = 0, L = 0, E = -1 TOTAL NET CHARGE = -2 3) How many water molecules would you get if you made a peptide out of all amino acids shown? 6 4) You decide that is too much water (rain) for you and you want to move to CYPRESS. What would that PEPTIDE look like? this one you can easily look up in the book, just make sure you draw a PEPTIDE, not just the individual amino acids PAY ATTENTION to Proline. .its nitrogen does not have a proton bound to it!! 5) What is the NET charge of CYPRESS? C=Y=P=S=0; E= -1; R = +1, NET CHARGE = 0 6) What would happen to your peptide under oxidizing conditions? Since it has a ONE cys it would form disulfides and since it would do that with another cypress we could call that a HOMODIMER. 7)
