Protein Structure Part 1: Where Are Proteins? What Do They Do?

[Music] Hi. In this video I’ll be talking about the basic structure and function of proteins. I invited my friend Marcy to help me explain what proteins are, how organisms use them to build useful structures, and how small changes in one region of one protein can produce BIG changes in an organism. First though, …

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 …
