The image shows 6 of the 20 amino acids commonly associated with the human diet. All 20 amino acids can be built simultaneously with this kit. These models are done in the "Orbit x-peg" style & are compatible with the class biochemistry set. You can use it to complement our Apha Helix-Beta Pleated Sheet Model kit.
You can also build them in "Orbit basic style" or "Orbit flexible style". Use our free on-line 3D Molecular Model Builder to see the slight differences in how the structures are rendered. The Model Builder recognizes both the full name & the 3 letter abbreviations of these amino acids.
You can also try Wikipedia examples for dipeptides, tripeptides & polypeptides. Some work for their common names & others work for their chemical names.
