COMMENTS

These are the 20 standard human amino acids; humans have hydroxyproline as a 21st amino acid, but only in collagen. - Jonathan Vos Post, Feb 22 2009

The order in which these were discovered is given by Pert, p.65, as N, C, L, G, Y, D, A, V, S, E, F, R, K, H, P, W, hydroxyproline, I, M, T. - Jonathan Vos Post, Apr 30 2013

There are two abbreviations for each amino acid. Here I use the first abbreviation of one letter which determines the order.

Each formula is written in two orders: oxygen-nitrogen and nitrogen-oxygen. The last column denotes the page in the mentioned dictionary where the corresponding data can be found.
