Michaela Gack – TRIM Proteins and the Future of Virology

(calm piano music) – What is unique about our research is that we look at both sides of the coin. We look at human cells and how the human immune response works, but on the other hand we learn from viruses and how they block the human immune response. My name is Michaela Gack and …

Proteins and Nucleic Acids : Key Biomolecules II

Proteins and Nucleic Acids : Key Biomolecules II

Hi, everyone! Welcome back to BOGObiology! This tutorial is going to cover proteins and nucleic acids. We will discuss their structure their function and where they can be found. Different groups of atoms combine to form biomolecules. When we talked about carbohydrates and lipids, we used carbon hydrogen oxygen and sometimes nitrogen. Now that we’re …

DNA, Hot Pockets, & The Longest Word Ever: Crash Course Biology #11

Ok, roll it. You know what this is? It is the longest word in the world. Like, anywhere, in any language, ever. More than 189,000 letters. If you were to write it down, though I don’t know why you would, it’d fill up more than 100 pages! And if you could actually say it without, …

Protein Structure

Hey guys, it’s Professor Dave, I want to tell you about proteins. So we know about amino acids, and these are the monomers that will form proteins, which are also known as polypeptides. Proteins are polymers of amino acids, and they are the most diverse type of biomolecule in your body. Different kinds of proteins …

Co-factors, co-enzymes, and vitamins | MCAT | Khan Academy

Today, we’re going to talk about co-factors and co-enzymes and how sometimes they can be essential to proper enzymatic function. But first, let’s review the idea that enzymes make reactions go faster. And they do this by lowering the activation energy peak of their respective reactions. Let’s also review the idea that enzymes bind their …

What is a Protein? Learn about the 3D shape and function of macromolecules

Proteins play countless roles throughout the biological world, from catalyzing chemical reactions to building the structures of all living things. Despite this wide range of functions, all proteins are made out of the same twenty building blocks, called amino acids. The way these twenty amino acids are arranged dictates the folding of the protein into …

Proteins: the “Primary” Nutrient

Proteins: the “Primary” Nutrient

Proteins were named one and a half centuries ago after the late greek world “πρωτεῖος” (Proteios), which means, ‘of primary importance’. The name is well-deserved because proteins are capable of accomplishing truly amazing things in our body. No wonder that for many people, proteins are the “king” of nutrients. But this idea of primacy has …
