Biochemistry is the study of the chemical reactions in a body. The biomolecules play an important role in it. They act as building blocks of life. Sugars, fatty acids, amino acids (which form proteins), and nucleotides consist of four major families of biomolecules. Some are macromolecules (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.
Question 1: Do all the 20 amino acids found in proteins have at least one asymmetric carbon atom?
Explanation: Glycine has no asymmetric
Question 2: The peptide bond is stronger than that of esters? What unique features of the peptide bond make it stronger than the ester bond?
Answer: Yes, peptide bonds are stronger than esters.
Explanation: The peptide bond is also called the amide bond, which is stronger than ester bond because
