The R group or side chain of the amino acid lysine is -(CH 2 ) 4 -NH 2 . The R group or side chain of the amino acid alanine is -CH 3 . Where would you expect to find these amino acids in a globular protein in aqueous solution? a. Lysine would be in the interior, and alanine would be on the exterior of the  globular protein.  b. Alanine would be in the interior, and lysine would be on the exterior of the  globular protein.  c. Both lysine and alanine would be in the interior of the globular protein.  d. Both lysine and alanine would be on the exterior of the globular protein.  e. Both lysine and alanine would be in the interior and on the exterior of the  1
