I'm doing a lab and my biology teacher specifically told me to count the amino acids found in the hemoglobin of the aforementioned animals. Since I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd rather not count, and I cannot for the life of me find the numbers on the Internet, I figured I would post what numbers I have. I should mention that my mom helped me. DISCLAIMER: Whether or not this would be considered cheating depends entirely upon the cheating policies you have to follow. Number of alanine amino acids in humans, gorillas & horses: 15 Number of valine amino acids in humans: 18 Fellow PF members, feel free to correct the numbers I post, but please do not add the number of any other amino acids, otherwise I may just skip counting and I don't really know what my teacher would do if he ever found out I "cheated" and and looked it up - though he might be OK.
