Properties of Amino Acid Side Chains

Postby NiceOnTheIce » Thu Nov 04, 2010 11:28 pm

Hi there,
I've memorized the names and the one letter codes for all 20 amino acids, but would someone be able to tell me the properties (hydrophobic, polar, or ~neutral) of all the side chains? Every web site I go to says something different, and my professor didn't add that to his slides. I know that Aspartic and Glutamic Acid are acidic; that Histidine, Arginine and Lysine are basic; but as for the other properties I mentioned...?

just pick, which one you like... ... 80&bih=580
I like this one
because it tells you everything (but is not clear, so something simpler will be probably better in the beginning;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
