Question

Polylysine and polyglutamate are two examples of synthetic polypeptides which can assume an α-helical structure under appropriate conditions. identify which of these two synthetic polypeptides can form an α-helix at the indicated ph values.

2 Answer

  • I believe that the answer to the question provided above is the Polylysine , it can assume an α-helical structure under appropriate conditions.  Polyglutamate  can form an α-helix at the indicated ph values.  
    Hope my answer would be a great help for you.    If you have more questions feel free to ask here at Brainly.
  • Lys is an amino acid that has a side chain with a positive charge, so it will likely form an alpha helix in basic conditions while glutamate is acidic so it will likely form an alpha helix in acidic conditions.

    Polylysine @ pH13

    Polyglutamate @ pH 2
