Amino acids MCQs with Answers

Amino acids MCQs

Hello students, today we will be discussing some MCQs on the Protein and amino acids. We know how much proteins are important. The proteins are present in each and every cells of the body. The amino acids are the building blocks for the protein. AAs (amino acids) are organic compounds which have functional groups along with the side chain to each amino acid. The amino acids are very important to the humans because the body uses amino acids to make proteins and later the proteins will help body for the growth, repairing tissue etc.

The MCQs will help to gain more knowledge about amino acids and proteins.
