Proteins have a primary structure. If you are provided a method to know which amino acid is at either of the two termini (ends) of a protein, can you link this information to the homogeneity or purity of a protein?

Solution :-

The series of amino acids, i.e., the positional information in a protein which is the first amino acid, which is second, and so on is known as the primary structure of a protein. The initial amino acid is also known as an N-terminal amino acid. The final amino acid is known as the C-terminal amino acid. Yes, we can relate this information to the homogeneity or purity of a protein. Based on the number of amino groups and carboxyl groups, there are acidic (e.g., glutamic acid), basic (lysine), and neutral (valine) amino acids, proteins may be acidic, basic, and neutral.
