of protein substances More than 30,000 different kinds of protein 3000 studied 3000 studied Overview of Protein Contains carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen And at least one N in structures N is in the form of an amine group (NH2) Unique structure and function Twenty amino acids commonly found in human protein Proteins = 50% of the dry weight of most cells Carboxyl group (COOH) Carboxyl group (COOH) Sulfur, phosphorus, cobalt, iron Amino Acid NH2 O Overview of Protein Amino Acids Unique side groups Size Shape Electrical charge R C C OH H R group Acid group Nitrogen group 5 8/31/2009 Fig. 6

Denaturation of Proteins Denaturation Foods are a means of obtaining amino acids Cooking can make substances available Vitamin biotin (cooked eggs) Denaturation of Proteins Overview of Protein Amino acids20 required by body Essential indispensable Body does not have pathway to synthesize Supplied by diet Supplied by diet Nonessential Can be provided through metabolic pathways Conditionally essential amino acids Heat/acid/alkaline/enzymes Results in alteration of the protein's three dimensional structure Under certain conditions 7 8/31/2009 Dietary Protein Animal proteins Highquality Complete 9 essential amino acids Dietary Protein Allornone principle in protein synthesis If not all of the amino acids are present, protein synthesis does not occur Lowquality q y Incomplete Lacks
