HideShow resource information
What are the building blocks of a protein structure?
Amino Acids.
1 of 6
What do the animo acid structures determine?
They determine how high the levels of structure are within the molecules.
2 of 6
What is the Aplha-Helix structure?
It is the first structure which is rod shaped and looks as though it is coiling around an imaginary cylinder.
3 of 6
What is the Teritary structure?
It is the formation/way that the coils i.e Aplha-Helix and Beta-Pleated Sheets fold in respect to one another.
4 of 6
What is the Quaternary structure?
It is the arrangement of polypeptide subunits within complex proteins that are made up of two or more subunits

How are proteins synthesised?
They are synthesissed during a process called translation.
