I got a homework question that asks the following.
"How many different tripeptides can be formed from one molecule each of the amino acids tyrosine, valine, and alanine?"
However, I'm not quite sure I understand what its asking.
I thought "maybe its asking how many peptide bonds are needed to bond the three amino in which case the answer would be 2." However, these are tripeptides we are talking about and it only gives 3,6,9,12,24 as answer choices. So If I were to pick 3 that would mean I have 9 peptide bonds throughout the whole protein chain???? Please help this confused chemistry student!
