|Superclasses:||an amino acid or its derivative|
This class contains all of the amino acids, defined as any molecule that contains both amine and carboxyl functional groups. The class includes both α amino acids, in which both functional groups are attached to the same carbon atom, and non-α amino acids, in which the groups are attached to different carbon atoms.
Child Classes: a basic amino acid (3) , a D-amino acid (17) , a glutamate (2) , a lanthionine isomer (0) , a modified amino acid (47) , a neutral amino acid (6) , a non-α amino acid (1) , a non-polar amino acid (12) , a polar amino acid (13) , an α amino acid (50) , an aromatic amino acid (9) , an L-amino acid (36) , DL-norvaline (1) , serine (2)
