    @jornelso Hmm, i would say, Variations in R group usually lead to different amino acid. And Ofcourse You Know, Amino acid are made up of a central carbon to which are attached a carboxyl group, an amino group, a hydrogen atom, and an R group. Lets check out an E.g : Glycine has H(Hydrogen) as its R group, while Alanine has CH3 as its R group So which is your Answer ?? Cheers!!
