The α - amino acids, usually exist in the form of zwitter ions. It means they have:



A

No acidic or basic group                

loader
B

Basic group - COOand acidic group NH4+

loader
C

Basic group -COO- and acidic group - NH3+

loader
D

Basic group - COO- and acidic group - COO2-

loader

Solution

The correct option is C

Basic group -COO- and acidic group - NH3+




This is the simplest α -amino acid glycine and this shows the formation of a zwitter ion.

We can clearly see that the zwitter ion has one basic group - COO- and one acidic group - NH3+
