Amino Acids - Tertiary Structure

The following is a partial protein with 6 amino acids missing. Supply six DIFFERENT amino acids. Choose them such that the amino acids across from each other show tertiary structure interaction. Label the type of interaction (H-bonding, hydrophobic, ion-ion, etc). Please see attachment.


Solution Summary

The solution illustrates the formation of tertiary structures by adding in amino acids. The different types of interactions between the amino acids are also labelled (H-bonding, hydrophobic interaction, and ion-ion interaction).
