What form exists at the isoelectric point of each of the following amino acids: (a) valine; (b) leucine; (c) proline; (d) glutamic acid?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The amino acids can be described as the organic compounds that comprised of the carboxylic acid and amino group along with alkyl groups. The isoelectronic point can be described as the pH at which amino acid is neutral and will not be moved in the presence of the electric field.

Step 2


The isoelectronic point for the amino acid of valine is represented below:
