Question

How many different proteins, each composed of 8 amino acids, can be constructed using the 20 different amino acids found in proteins?

1 Answer

  • To solve this, you would need to identify the number of amino acids (20) you are dealing with and the number of positions (8) that are available in your polypeptide. so that would come out to 20 x 20 x 20 x 20 x 20 x 20 x 20 x 20 = 20^8
