Re: Finding the net charge of amino acid

I'm a little puzzled, I guess. You haven't been given the specific pKa's for alanine and yet you are supposed to come up with some sort of fractional charge, as in % ionized or something like that? The pKa's for alanine are 2.3 for the acid group and 9.7 for the amino group. The formal pI of ...
