Chapter 3                    Proteins     Protein structure (pages 125- 148; figures 3-1 to 3-28, 3-35) 1. The Shape and structure of proteins - primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary structure of proteins - primary structure – sequence of amino acids; peptide bond - secondary structures –  α -helix and  β -sheet; hydrogen bonds - tertiary structure – noncovalent bonds; folding of proteins into a conformation of  lowest energy - quaternary structure – noncovalent bonds 2. Protein domain arrangements (module) - “In-line” – e.g. fibronectin type I, immunoglobulin - “plug-in” – e.g. SH2 domain, kringle 3. Proteins can be classified into many families 4. Sequence searches can identify close relatives - Generally a 30% identity suggests relatedness 5. Domain shuffling
