What Are The Basics of pH? Do You Know The Importance?

What are the Basics of pH? The nature of the solution (acidic, alkaline (or) neutral) can be represented in terms of either hydrogen ion concentration (or) hydroxyl ion concentration. In 1909, Sorenson used a logarithmic scale for expressing the H+ concentration. This scale was called “pH”, Where “P” stands for ‘Power’ and ‘H’ for hydrogen […]

What is RNase? What is the importance in living things?

RNase means Ribonuclease. It is RNA digesting enzyme. It is another noteworthy example of a protein with tertiary structure.  Let us see the basic details now. The molecular weight of RNase is 13,700. Christian Anfinsen (1950) and William stein (1958) have elucidated the complete structure of this pancreatic protein. RNase consists of 124 amino acids […]

What is Myoglobin? What is the function of Myoglobin?

One of the most important proteins in the human body is MYOGLOBIN. Today we are discussing Myoglobin in this post. Myoglobin is found in muscle tissue, where it binds oxygen, helping to provide extra oxygen to release energy to power muscular contractions. Let us come to the history of Myoglobin, Myoglobin was the first protein they […]

How the Tertiary structure of Protein is Organized closely?

All Globular Proteins are tertiary proteins. These have consisted with a small helix and elongated structures with considerable length and small cross-sectional area. In the Globular protein formation, few of the bonds are involved. They are Hydrogen bonds, disulfide bonds, hydrophobic interactions, and ionic interactions. This is a very compact three-dimensional structure, the wound has […]

What is the Secondary Structure of Protein, Types and Organization?

Secondary Structure of Protein Organizational assumption points are No rotation occurs around the peptide bond (as it is partly double bonded in nature). The chain of amino acids forms a rhythmical structure – forming a repeating pattern. That the maximum number of interactions from Hydrogen bonding possible are occurring, independent of the type of residue […]

Protein Structure: Primary Structure of proteins

The peptide bond , strong, is responsible. It has adjacent atoms in the same plane where the fact that it is coplanar  and Linear molecule. It has a partial double bond character of resonance between two forms. This confers it an almost full strength. The rotations are absent and there are two possible conformations for […]
