What are the characteristics of amino acids?
All amino acids have at least one acidic carboxylic acid (-COOH) group and one basic amino (-NH2) group. Amino acids are colorless, crystalline solid. They are soluble in water and insoluble in organic solvent. Only L- form of amino acids are found in Proteins in human body.
