Functional Groups

APBIO-GGI3EN

When comparing multiple amino acids, their structures are exactly the same except for one functional group. That functional group will interact with other functional groups on other amino acids to form specific proteins.

What types of interactions could take place?

A

Covalent bonding, ionic bonding, sulfur bonding, hydrogen bonding, the production of hydrophobic regions, and hydrophilic regions.

B

The production of hydrophobic regions only.

C

The production of hydrophilic regions only.

D

Covalent bonding, ionic bonding, and sulfur bonding only.
