I want to know what is meant by polymorphism of alanine amino-acid ?.

Are alpha-alanine and beta-alanine considered as polymorphs...?

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

Thank you.

  • @ Ivan, So the alpha-alanine and beta-alanine are isomers..?? and not polymorphs? – D.H.N Oct 11 at 12:27
  • Yes, I'd classify them so. – Ivan Neretin Oct 11 at 12:29
  • Gene polymorphism is resulting a in different aminoacids in sequence. – Mithoron Oct 11 at 15:45
