  • Proteins
    • Globular Proteins
      • haemoglobin, enzymes, antibodies, transporters in membranes, some hormones (insulin)
      • very precise primary structure
        • normally made up of a non-repeating sequence of amino acids
      • often soluble in water
      • usually metabolically active
        • take part in chemical reactions in and around cells
    • Fibrous Proteins
      • collagen, keratin, elastin
      • often made of repeating sequence of amino acids
      • insoluble in water
      • usually metabolically unreactive- with a structural role
