The sequence of amino acids in a protein is called its primary structure. In biochemistry, this is always given starting with the N-terminal and ending with the C-terminal amino acid, because this is the order in which amino acids are added during protein synthesis in the cell (this process is discussed in detail in textbooks of molecular cell biology, e.g. [48]).
