Thanks for your reply. But the site you mention has the same link as
the site I mentioned earlier, it was the data at this site that made me
raise the question. I'm interested in knowing what makes the His side
chain an *acceptor* of H-bonds, but not the Arg and Trp side chains.
(All these side chains do act as H-bond *donors*).
I appreciate any replies.
