Problem

Give the name (3 letter and 1 letter) of the following peptides.


Solution

The peptides shown have three (3) amino acids each in their sequence and are thus, tripeptides. The name of each tripeptide will depend on its amino acid sequence (i.e. primary structure), starting from the free N-terminal. You can identify its component amino acids by knowing the side chain of each α-carbon present in the sequence. The side chains for these tripeptides are shown below:
