The 20 common amino acids differ from one another in several important ways. Here are just two: Mass. The smallest amino acid (glycine) has a mass of 57 Da (i.e. g/mol), and the largest (tryptophan) has a mass of Da; Isoelectric point (pH at which the amino acid has a neutral charge). Jul 01, · The stereochemistry of most of the standard amino acids is defined by two possible mirror image isomers or enantiomers. For example, consider the two enantiomers of Ala. The standard amino acid itself, alanine, corresponds to the L - stereoisomer, or L- Ala.
