Unit 1 Protein

What is the proteome entire set of proteins expressed by a genome.
Why is the proteome larger than the genome alternative RNA splicing and post translational modification create different proteins from 1 gene
What is a protein polymer made up of particular sequence of amino acids
Why is the order of AA important This determines protein structure and function
What is the primary structure of proteins specific order of AA
What is the secondary structure of proteins Hydrogen bonding (along the backbone of the protein strand)
Name the 3 types of protein secondary structure alpha helix beta pleated sheet (parallel or anti parallel) turns
What are the 4 groups that surround a central carbon on any amino acid COOH (acid) NH2 (base) H R group (this varies)
What are the four types of AA acidic basic polar non polar/hydrophobic
What functional group denotes an acid COOH/COO-
What functional group denotes a base NH2/NH3+
What functional group is polar OH
What AA are hydrophilic polar, acidic and basic
What charge is on an ionised acidic AA negative i.e. COO-
What charge is on an ionised basic AA positive i.e. NH3+
Tertiary structure of a protein involves between what parts of a AA R groups
Name 3 types of interactions that occur at the tertiary/quatenary level van der waal ionic disulphide bridge hydrogen hydrophobic
What type of interaction is covalent at tertiary or quaternary level disulphide bridge
What is a prosthethic group non protein unit tightly bound to a protein necessary for its function
Give an example of a prosthetic group Fe in haemoglobin for oxygen delivery
What is the different between tertiary and quaternary level of protein structure tertiary R groups within one polypeptide whereas quaternary interactions involve interactions between R groups on different polypeptide chains

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
