When a peptide bond forms to join amino acids, a water molecule (MW 18) is lost so the average MW of amino acid residues is 110. 23) _ T __ Glycine is a very flexible residue in peptides. with so many glycines present it is unlikely that a stable helical structure would be formed. 24) _ F ___ At pH 5, positively and negatively charged residues would be spaced 4 residues apart and would be close in space, a favorable interaction. Also, D which will be negatively charged at pH 5 is at the positive end of the helix dipole and H will be positively charged also and it is at the negative end of the helix dipole. Both of these are stabilizing interactions. Name: ______________________________________________________________________________...
