During a discussion of NMR, my lecturer told me to think about which amino acids contain protons in an aromatic ring, and whether any are likely to be affected by changes in pH.
The 4 aromatic amino acids are His, Phe, Tyr and Trp. I've marked Histidine as such in my notes, but can't remember why I thought this at the time. Contrary to this, Wikipedia states explicitly that “the imidazole ring of histidine is aromatic at all pH values”.
I also marked Histidine as "+ve" (as in, positive) but I'm stumped as to what I meant by it
I can't find any information on the others, but am guessing perhaps the fact that these have phenyl (rather than imidazole) rings means it's possible they respond differently to changing pH?
Any advice or hints would be appreciated, as I can't find any further information online and nothing in the structures jumps out at me to suggest an answer.
