Amino Acid Quiz Questions and Answers
Protein is a macronutrient and plays a crucial role in building bones, and body tissues, such as muscles. They participate in practically every process of a cell.
It is mainly present in animal products, along with that it is also present in other sources, such as nuts and legumes.
Different Organic compounds which combine together form different proteins known as amino acids and due to this reason they are known to be building blocks of proteins. Amino acids have (-NH2 ) and (-COOH ) as their functional group.

From the above quiz on amino acid, we have learned so many things like different types of amino acids, name of essential and non-essential amino acids, their function and properties, deficiencies, etc.
We also learned about physical features of amino acids. Different amino acids combine to form different types of protein biomolecules and these biomolecules perform several biological functions in the human system. They play a crucial role in proper functioning and growth of the human body.
There are approximately 300 amino acids in nature but only 20 take part in the synthesis of protein.
Out of these 20 amino acids, only a few easily synthesis by our body known as non-essential amino acids. They are: alanine, asparagine, arginine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, cysteine, glutamine, proline, glycine, serine, and tyrosine.
The amino acids needed by our body but not synthesized by it are known as essential amino acids. They are: Isoleucine, histidine, lysine, leucine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, methionine, threonine, and valine.
