What are proteins? Are proteins polymers? Explain. What molar mass ranges are shown by proteins? What fraction of our bodies is made up of proteins?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret and define protein and polymer of protein. Interpret the range of molar mass of protein and interpret the fraction of body made of protein.

Concept Introduction:

Protein is a long chain of polypeptide in which number of amino acids is linked to each other to produce a structure known as protein.

Amino group of one amino acid linked to carboxyl group of second amino acid and linear chain is created to produce 10 structure of protein.

Explanation

Primary structure of protein consists of long chain of amino acid linked to each other through peptide bond.

Each amino acid consists of carboxyl end and amino group which are joined through peptide linkage to produce dipeptide, tripeptide and polypeptide according to number of amino acids linked to each other...
