Glycines and Prolines and Hydrophobic Amino Acids

There are two demonstrations on this page: 1. Prolines and Glycines 2. Hydrophobic and polar. first select the one you want to see. Then choose options appropriate for the demonstration.

Prolines and Glycines Regions of helix and sheet can be shown separately while showing that neither of these proteins are observed in them.

Hydrophobic and Polar Some attempt to demonstrate where the different classes of amino acids are observed in a water soluble protein.
