Chapter 6  PROTEINS I. Introduction-Definition  compounds composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen,  and nitrogen atoms, arranged into amino acids linked in a chain.  i. Protein is “expensive” energy source~ metabolically ii. We eat protein to make protein II. Amino Acids i. building blocks of proteins ii. DNA in protein~ active component iii. There are 21 amino acids: selenocysteine 21 st  in 1998 iv. III. Protein Synthesis  a. DNA-RNA-protein~  Replication of DNA  transcription  RNA translation  PROTEIN i. If essential amino acids are not present~ protein needed won’t be  produced b.
