The amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. These are linked to each other by peptide bonds and the sequence thus formed is also known as a polypeptide. Proteins serve various functions such as maintaining the structure in the form of muscles, catalyze biochemical reactions in the form of enzymes, and allows proper folding biomolecules in the form of chaperonins.
