Description

Proteins are organic compounds made of amino acids arranged in a linear chain and folded into a globular form. The amino acids in a polymer are joined together by the peptide bonds between the carboxyl and amino groups of adjacent amino acid residues. The sequence of amino acids in a protein is defined by the sequence of a gene, which is encoded in the genetic code.

  6. Basic Rules of Protein Folding

    31 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Seth Lichter

    How are proteins made? Inside cells, messenger RNA first instructs the ribosomes as to the order which amino acids should be joined together. Linked together and released from the ribosome, the protein is not functional. It now needs to fold into a precise three-dimensional shape. There are no...

  7. Cataract, Myopathy and Keratitis: Possible use of Nanoparticles

    16 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Ch. Mohan Rao

    Small heat shock proteins are critical for several cellular functions. Failure of heat shock proteins, thus, can cause compromised cellular activity leading to disease. Fungal Keratitis is an eye dieses that can be treated with anti fungal drugs. Availability of the drug at the site of action is...

  8. Self-association of peptides and proteins: Retrospect and prospects

    30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: R. Nagaraj

    The ability of peptides and proteins to form aggregates was known from the dawn of protein and peptide chemistry! It was often considered a nuisance and attention was directed towards disaggregating them to ensure dissolution particularly in aqueous solution. X-ray crystallography has indicated...
