Textbook Problem

Identify the type of structure (primary, secondary, tertiary, or quaternary) that corresponds to the following statements.

  1. (a) This type of structure is the amino acid sequence in the protein.
  2. (b) This type of structure indicates how different peptide chains in the overall protein are arranged with respect to one another.
  3. (c) This type of structure refers to how the polypeptide chain is folded, including how amino acids that are far apart in the sequence end up in the overall molecule.
  4. (d) This type of structure deals with structures that arise from hydrogen bonding between amide groups in the protein's backbone.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The type of structure of the protein (primary, secondary, tertiary, or quaternary) has to be identified.

Concept introduction: Proteins are natural biopolymers. Amino acids are the main building block of protein molecules. A large number of amino acids condense together to form a polypeptide chain. A large polypeptide chain is called protein. Proteins perform many functions and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of body tissue and organs.

Protein molecule has 4 different structure namely primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary.

Explanation

There are 20 amino acids that can combine in a different sequence to make protein. The sequence of amino acid residues in which they combine and linked via a peptide bond to each other is called the primary structure a protein molecule...
