  • Amino acid [r]: Biochemical with an amino group, a carboxyl group, a hydrogen atom, and a side chain bonded to a central carbon. [e]
  • Arginine [r]: A positively charged common amino acid, incorporated into proteins. [e]
  • Biology [r]: The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future. [e]
  • Cytoskeleton [r]: The mechanical scaffold, made up of fibrous proteins, determining the shape of a cell. [e]
  • Hydrogen bond [r]: A non-covalent and non-ionic chemical bond involving a hydrogen atom and either Fluorine, Nitrogen, or Oxygen. [e]
  • Hydrophobic cluster analysis [r]: Method for comparing and aligning protein sequences, by analysing patterns of the two-dimensional (2D) representation of the sequences. [e]
