Protein structure

Any class of nitroges compounds of large molecules composed one or more long chains of amino acids.They are insential part of all living organisms. If you look at the picture you will see types of foods that contain proteins such as vegetables, beans,nuts,meats,diary and so on.

Proteins are made up of amino acids.They are also held together by different bonds and folded into a variety of three demensional structures. Proteins can be made up by 20 different amino acids to make up 100,000 proteins or so in the human body .The linear sequence of amino acids within a protein is considered a primary structure.

Amino acids are joined together by peptide bonds to form the basic structure of proteins. These additional bonds twist and turn the proteins into convouluted shapes that are unique to the protein essential to is ability to perform certain functions within the human body.

Proteins are good for you because proteins perform different activities in the cell. It makes up the outer layer of hair, nails, and skin. Proteins are also the main components of muscles.
