. How many possible primary structures exist for a small polypeptide containing four individual amino acids?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the possible primary structures for polypeptide with four individual amino acids.

Concept Introduction:

Protein is a long chain of polypeptide in which numbers of amino acids are linked to each other to produce a structure known as protein.

Each amino acid consists of carboxyl end and amino group which are joined through peptide linkage to produce dipeptide, tripeptide and polypeptide according to number of amino acids linked to each other.

Explanation

Consider a polypeptide with four individual amino acid such as gly, ala, ser, val. The possible combination of amino acids as follows:

Gly-ala-ser-val

Gly-ala -val-ser

Gly -val-ala -ser

Val- Gly-ala-ser

ala -Gly -ser- val

ala -Gly- val-ser

ala - val ...
