Here shown are the Kékulé structure of the 20 aminoacids + Selenocysteine and the two Bacterial exclusive proteinogenic aminoacids. And one non-aminoacid. Put together into an animation.

That looks like a hellton of work.

Wasn't too bad, took about 2 hours.

I found out that I got one of them wrong, homocysteine is not an aminoacid. Cysteine is though.

I'm too lazy to remove homocysteine so i'll just note it as "not an aminoacid".

I was also missing 3 it seems, I'll correct all these things now.

FOr the refernce, and maybe confused people.

Homocysteine is not an aminoacid.
Selenocysteïne is usually omitted from the standard aminoacids (it's considered the 21st).

N-formalmethionine is only used by bacteria.
Pyrrolysine Are only used by methanogen-bacteria and archea.
Neither are aminoacids, but they're considered proteinogenic aminoacids.

I hope this isn't too confusing.
Perhaps I should make a version of this ASCIImation with only the standard 20.

I made a separate version that only includes the standard 20 aminoacids, sorry for all the possible
confusion.

Well, in the process to at least, still in my first year. This is just a really good way of
memorising them, as I need to do that.
