Globular Tightly folded polypeptide chains, having a much more compact structure. The tertiary structure is generally rather irregular, often containing many different types of secondary structure. Many globular proteins consist of partly helical and partly non- helical secondary structures. Globular proteins include most enzymes and most of the

Unformatted text preview: proteins involved in gene expression and regulation with which we will be involved. Their roles tend to be dynamic, involving the ability to catalyze reactions or change conformation. If globular proteins loose their 3D structure (i.e. become denatured ) there will be a corresponding loss in the activity of the protein....
