The image shows 4 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.

Here are some sample tetrapeptides. You can complement them with any of the standard 20 amino acids. The 3D Molecular Model Builder recognizes both the full name as well as its 3 letter abbreviation. e.g. Alanine-ala, etc. Just be sure to get a planar nitrogen for the additional peptide bond.


Epitalon (Epithalamin) Ala-Glu-Asp-Gly
Morphiceptin Tyr-Pro-Phe-Pro
Endomorphin-1 Tyr-Pro-Trp-Phe
Rapastinel Thr-Pro-Pro-Thr
