    Amino acids: properties

    Amino acids: properties

    Sung to the Beverly Hillbillies melody:

    Come an' listen to my story about the a-mi-nos
    Five Al-i-phats kick off our show
    Glycine, Alanine, Valine and then
    Leucine and Iso make up half of ten

    Well the next thing you know are three aromats
    phenylalanine(F) is right off the bat
    tYrosine has alcohol next to its ring
    And tryptophan(W) has indole double ring thing.

    Sulfur in Cysteine; it loves to bond
    Sulfur Methionine is much more a snob
    Alcoholic Serine, well wouldn't you know,
    And Threonine's OH gives a warm glow.

    Acid-aspartic(D) and glutamic(E) are ionized
    With pK of 4, their protons are lysed,
    asparagine(N) and glutamine(Q) play a different role
    With amides they're neutral but they both have poles

    lysine(K) and aRginine are the basic kind,
    But Histidine's imidazole can't make up its mind,
    Proline, the last one, coming at the end
    It's imine, an oddball, proteins use to bend.
