The Titration Behavior of Amino Acids
Amino acids are polyprotic, i.e., they all contain two or three dissociable protons.
As a biochemistry student, you will be capable of more precise and quantative analysis
of polypeptides and proteins, and their associated functions, if you can
analyze the titration behavior of the amino acid side chains.
To test your understanding of amino acid titration behavior, choose any of the
1) Observe the titration behavior of a
selected amino acid.
2) Analyze the titration behavior of
a selected amino acid.
3) Compare the titrations of
two or more amino acids
4) Identify an amino acid by its
