An amino acid is a molecule with a functional R group and an amino end or n-terminus consisting of nitrogen and two hydrogen, and on the other end the c-terminus is a carboxlic acid, a carbon doubled bonded to an oxygen with a hydroxyl group and in the middle is your asymmetric carbon (a carbon bonded to four different molecular groups). Not sure if that answers your question, to eliminate ambiguity, next time elaborate on what you want answered.
