CharacteristicsAmino AcidR-Groups
Non-Polar, HydrophobicAliphatic Hydrocarbon R-Group
Non-Polar, Hydrophobic (Exception)Only has an -H side chain. Can be either in hydrophobic or hydrophillic environment. Often resides where 2 polypeptides come close in contact
Non-Polar, Hydrophobic (Exception)It has polar, uncharged character but forms covalent bond with another of itself to form a disulfide bond.
Non-Polar, Hydrophobic (Exception)Also has an aliphatic hydrocarbon R-group. Has hydrophobic character and creates a kink in polypeptide chain that disrupts ordered secondary structure. It is NOT found in alpha-helixes
