Amino Acids

Post by mistique » Mon Feb 26, 2007 11:38 am

Hey everyone out there.

Does anyone know what the answer to this question could possibly be:

"If an amino acid is involved in the formation of a sulfur bond, what can you conclude about the molecular formula of that amino acid?"

I find this question very confusing.
It would be very helpful if someone could help me with this question as i have a SAC coming up soon..
Thanks :)

Well off the top of my head I would say that the amino acids involved would be two cysteines. I dont know of another a.a. that creates di-sulfide bonds? but I am no chemist.

you can first find out wich amino acids are recponsible for bonding sulfer then study there structure to see how the bond is done. i dont know my self
