amino functional group
The amino functional group is basic and found in
proteins, amino acdis and the nitrogenous bases of DNA and RNA.
Under certain pH conditions the amino group can accept
a proton and gain a positive charge of +1.
At a pH of 7 the amino group of an amino acid
has a positive charge. The amino group then contributes a positive charge
to the amino acid at pH 7.
