Amino acids with hydrophobic r groups are most often found buried in the interior of folded proteins. true or false.

Answers

Answer from: hopkinsgail569

The answer is; True

Since the body is mainly composed of water solutions, molecules in the body need to be hydrophilic to interact positively with the water. For proteins to dissolve well in the body the hydrophilic groups are located on the outside of the folded proteins while the hydrophobic groups are ‘hidden’ in the inside of the protein. If the hydrophobic parts were located in the outside, the proteins would clump up togetehr and interfere with their functions.

Answer from: nunu7773

True

Explanation:

Hydrophobicity is the aversion to the water of a molecule (or part of it). Amino acids with a hydrophobic R group (glycine, alanine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, proline, phenylalanine, methionine, and tryptophan) will fold with the R groups in the interior to avoid water. This behavior is one of the most important forces in protein folding. You can see it exemplified in the image I added.

I hope you fidn this information useful and interesting! Good luck!
