Study Notes

Protein Structure

  • Quaternary structure is characterized by the specific 3D arrangement of multiple protein subunits.

Protein Folding

  • Hydrogen bonding, ionic interactions, and disulfide bonds are the bonding interactions that contribute to the stability of a protein's tertiary structure.

Protein Conformation

  • A nascent polypeptide chain, or a newly synthesized protein chain, is described as a protein that has not yet achieved its functional 3D conformation.

Test your knowledge of protein structure with this quiz covering topics such as helix, sheet, coil conformations, nonpolar amino acids, covalent bonds, tertiary structure, and mass spectrometry.
