The Specific Specificity!

Post by 2810712 » Fri Apr 21, 2006 5:42 am

For proteins, living systems are specific for L-AAs but for carbohydrates that degree of specificity is not do we explain it in the context of evolution..?

Also please tell me what is the degree of specificity for D-sugars & L-AAs...i mean when the specificity can be violated naturally, i'm interested in knowing that...
I got that D-Alanine is a bacterial marker [ i guess due to its role in murein formation of bacterial cell wall] but i don't know if any 'polypeps' contain D-AAs , & if yes ...upto what extent & all...

Similar querries for L glucose...& alph & beta sugars...

Please help me... i'm searching the web...suggest any good links too...

Thanking in advance,
