Protein Biochemistry – Lectures ppt
Proteins are the major components of living organisms and perform a wide range of essential functions in cells.
Proteins regulate metabolic activity, catalyze biochemical reactions and maintain structural integrity of cells and organisms.
All peptides and polypeptides are polymers of alpha-amino acids.
Each of these amino acid has a different chemical structure and different properties.
Each protein has a unique amino acid sequence that is genetically determined by the order of nucleotide bases in the DNA, the genetic code.
Since each protein has different numbers and kinds of the twenty available amino acids, each protein has a unique chemical composition and structure.. Read more about proteins biochemistry in the attached lectures in this post…
