There are several amino acids that less readily form α-helix conformations, one of which is glycine. By finishing the sentence below identify which one of the following A, B, C, D, or E is a reason that supports the above statement.
In the structure of glycine:
A. there is optimal use of hydrogen bonding.
B. large bulky side chains next to each other resulting in steric assistance.
C. two aliphatic amino acid residues are similarly spaced resulting in a hydrophobic interaction.
D. long stretches of negative or positive charges will repel each other
E. there is a lack of hydrogen atoms on the nitrogen atom thus preventing the formation of the correct patterns of hydrogen bond.
