Transcript
Protein Structure



Primary - sequence of amino acids
Secondary – folding into pleated
sheets or alpha helix
Tertiary – 3-D structure, completely
folded


Most proteins stop here
Quaternary – interaction of several
protein molecules

Hemoglobin
2-4 Chemical Reactions and Enzymes

Enzymes
 biological
catalysts

Speed up reactions
 Without them
reactions would
occur too slow for
life
 Lower the activation
energy
Enzymes

Enzymes provide a site where substrates can
be brought together = Active Site (tertiary)
 The fit is like a lock and key
Enzyme Regulation

Work best at a
particular pH


Affected by changes
in temperature


Digestion enzyme
Denaturization
Concentration
