Rank of the amino acid in according to its protons number
1. Study of protons numbers
According to their protons
number, the 20 amino acids can be classified in 14 ranks. These 14 ranks are
regrouped in two sets
 Set 1 with ranks of protons number from 1 to 7.
 Set 2 with ranks of protons number from 8 to 14.
Set 1: ranks of protons number from 1 to 7 
Set 2: ranks of protons number from 8 to 14

Fig. 1 Classification
of the 20 amino acids in according to the protons number. *Just the value 108 of the rebel group is discounted in counting, rebel
group values 72 and 80 are preserved because they represent also for amino
acids not included in the rebel group.
In according to their protons number, the number of ranks of the 20 amino acids is equal to 14 so two times the prime number 7. Except the rebel group, the total of the protons numbers of the 14 ranks is equal to 931 so equal to 133 times 7 (so also equal to 19 x 7 x 7). Respective sub totals of the set 1 and set 2 are also multiple of the prime number 7: 59 times 7 for the set 1 and 74 times 7 for the set 2.
Except the rebel group, the total of the protons numbers of all the coded are also multiple of the prime number 7: 4004 protons = 572 times 7.Also, sub totals of the two respective sets are multiple of the prime number 7: 348 times 7 for the set 1 and 224 times 7 for the set 2.

2. Study of the values of the
ranks in according to the protons number
In the distribution of the ranks previously
described appear also in the genetic code table symmetric phenomena of prime
number multiples. Here the phenomena are by multiples of the prime number 11.
