what makes proline a imino acid?which is the 21st amino acid?

Asked by preethambasilmartis 13th June 2016, 1:33 PM

Proline contains a secondary amine group, called an imine, instead of a primary amine group.

Therefore proline is called an imino acid.

Selenocysteine (Sec) is the 21st amino acid in the genetic code.
