Building Blocks of Protein

Building Blocks of Protein

[Buidling Blocks of Protein] Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. Some amino acids also contain sulfur. These elements come together to form amino acids. All amino acids have tetrahedral carbon, which is bonded by an amino group, a carboxyl group, a hydrogen group, and an R […]

Biomolecules: The Proteins

Welcome to Biomolecules: The Proteins. Proteins do most of the work in cells including DNA replication, transportation of molecules, and providing structure to cells. They’re also some of the largest biomolecules because they’re made up of long chains of building blocks, called amino acids. Proteins comprise ten to thirty percent of cell mass, and have […]

What is Protein? How Much Protein to Build Muscle?

You’ve probably heard it before how important it is to consume enough protein if you want to build muscle. But how does it is actually work? Protein is one of three energy sources of your body known as macronutrients, the other two being carbohydrates and fats. It is made up of little organic compounds known […]

Protein Synthesis | Biology for All | FuseSchool

Proteins are made of a long chain of amino acids which is being coded for by DNA. The order of the basis of DNA determines which protein is made by coding for a specific order of amino acids. This is protein synthesis and in this video, we’re going to look at how it works. You […]

The structure of protein. All Proteins contain 4 elements, carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen; however, some proteins contain phosphorus, sulfur, iron, zinc, magnesium and other trace metals. Proteins are giant macromolecules that are made up of amino acid building blocks. Amino acids can link together to form long chains, typically a protein consists of 100 […]

What is a Protein?

Proteins play countless roles throughout the biological world. Some transport nutrients throughout the body. Some help the chemical reactions happen at a faster rate. Others build the structures of the living things. Despite this wide range of functions, all proteins are made out of the same 21 building blocks, called amino acids. Amino acids are […]
