Amide: In organic chemistry, an amide, also known as an organic amide or a carboxamide, is a compound with the general formula RCNR′R″, where R, R', and R″ represent organic groups or hydrogen atoms. The amide group is called a peptide bond when it is part of the main chain of a protein, and isopeptide bond when it occurs in a side chain, such as in the amino acids asparagine and glutamine.
Amidah: The Amidah , also called the Shemoneh Esreh (שמנה עשרה 'eighteen'), is the central prayer of the Jewish liturgy. This prayer, among others, is found in the siddur, the traditional Jewish prayer book.
Amidon, North Dakota: Amidon is a city in, and the county seat of Slope County, North Dakota, United States.Amidon was the smallest incorporated county seat at the 2000 census. When the 2010 census reported its population as 20, it became the second-smallest incorporated county seat after Brewster, Nebraska, with a population of 17.
Amidine: Amidines are organic compounds with the functional group RCNR2, where the R groups can be the same or different. They are the imine derivatives of amides (RC(O)NR2).
Amidophosphoribosyltransferase: Amidophosphoribosyltransferase , also known as glutamine phosphoribosylpyrophosphate amidotransferase (GPAT), is an enzyme responsible for catalyzing the conversion of 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) into 5-phosphoribosyl-1-amine (PRA), using the amine group from a glutamine side-chain. This is the committing step in de novo purine synthesis.
