Examples of Clinical Aminoacidurias Metabolic defects : Phenylketonuria (Phe), Tyrosinemias (Phe,Tyr), Maple Syrup Urine Disease (Leu, Val, Ile), Alcaptonuria (Tyr) Absorption/transport defects : cystinuria (Cys), Hartnup disease , Fanconi’s Syndrome These diseases are generally diagnosed from indicators in the urine or plasma. These diseases will be discussed further in the amino acid metabolism lectures

Unformatted text preview: The peptide bond (C) is a hybrid of A and B, giving it a partial double bond character Planar nature of the peptide bond. The partial double bond characteristic prevents free rotation around the C-N bond; keeping it in the same plane with the attached O and H atoms. These planar bonds can pivot around the shared C α atom Trans conformation; most common and sterically favored Cis conformation; found rarely with Pro, sterically unfavorable The planar nature of the peptide bond restricts the possible conformations that a protein can assume. This can be predicted by the angle (above or below the peptide bond plane) of the two bonds between the α-carbon of the constituent amino acids. These phi ( φ ) and psi ( ψ ) angles can be used to predict and define some higher order protein structures. Peptide Bond Steric Restrictions Levels of Protein Structure...
