Protein Structures

  1. Primary
    sequence of amino acids linked by peptide linkages
  2. Secondary 
    Regular patterns of twists and folds of amino acids along the peptide backbone
  3. Motif
    • supersecondary protien folding pattern
    • beta-alpah-beta motif
    • alpha-turn-alpah motif
  4. Tertiary 
    • three-dimensional sahpe of protien molecule
    • generated by bending and folding of the polypeptide chain
  5. Quaternary
    arrangemnt of discrete polypeptides (subunits) into a single functional unit
  6. Domain
    domains of proteins are functional subunits within a larger structure
  7. Protien language
    • amino acids- letters
    • Motifs- words and phrases
    • Domains- paragraphs
