Structure of proteins - Tertiary – includes the three-dimensional arrangement of all atoms in the protein, including the atoms in the side chains and any prosthetic groups (ones other than amino acids) - In very large proteins, the folding of parts of the chain can occur independently of the foldinf of other parts. Such independently folded portions of proteins are referred to as DOMAINS - Forces stabilizing – hydrogen bonds between side chains, electrostatic attractions (salt, ionic bonds), hydrophobic interactions,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
