Default Amines and amino group



Hi forum,

I have ,probably, a very simple question for you lot to answer but i can't find an explanation i understand well enough on the net.

I've just started biology at college and i'm writing about amino acids. Through research in my "Life" book i see that they have two functional groups, one being animo.

Then looking online i see lots of sites talking about amines, which seem to also be NH with the no of H dependant on if they are primary or secondary etc. ?

I'm confused with the difference between amines and amino groups. Could someone please explain this to me.

Thanks alot.
