3D Structural Comparison of Glycine and Arginine
Look at the amino acid backbone of glycine? Reset view of glycine?
Look at amino acid backbone of arginine. Reset view of arginine.
Which atoms are in the side chain of glycine? Reset view of glycine.
Which atoms are in the side chain of arginine? Reset view of arginine.
See glycine as it appears with its electron clouds shown as halos of dots. Reset view of glycine.
See arginine as it appears with its electron clouds shown as halos of dots. Reset view of arginine.
Looking at these two diagrams, do you see any additional differences
between glycine and arginine that might alter the wild-type structure of the
g subunit of the Na+/K+ ATPase?
