Textbook Problem

Draw the Lewis structure for the tripeptide glycine-phenylalanine-valine.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The lewis structure of tripeptide GlycinePhenylalanineValine has to be drawn.

Concept introduction: A tripeptide contain three amino acid and two peptide bond.

Peptide bond is the chemical bond which is formed between two molecule when carboxyl group of one molecule react with the amino group of another molecule releasing a water molecule. It usally occur between amino acids.

Explanation

This is a tripeptide having three amino acid and two amide linkage (peptide bond). Start with amino group of glycine on left. Join it with phenylalanine via peptide bond and then connect with valine via another amide linkage.With the help of lone pair of electron complete the tripeptide. Lone pair of electron are pairs of electron which do not take part in bond formation in a molecule...
