What is a Primary Structure of Proteins?
The primary structure of peptides and proteins refers to the linear number and order of the amino acids present
1 of 6
What is a Secondary Structure in Proteins?
The ordered array of amino acids in a protein confer regular conformational forms upon that protein
2 of 6
Describe 'The α-Helix'
The α-helix is a common secondary structure encountered in proteins of the globular class
3 of 6
What is Hydrogen Bonding?
Polypeptides contain numerous proton donors and acceptors both in their backbone and in the R-groups of the amino acids.
4 of 6
What is a Hydrophobic Forces?
Proteins are composed of amino acids that contain either hydrophilic or hydrophobic R-groups
5 of 6
What are Electrostatic Forces?
Electrostatic forces are mainly of three types; charge-charge, charge-dipole and dipole-dipole
