Unformatted text preview: (hopanoids) in oil deposits. These are derived from bacteria. 3. Amino acids and proteins. Primary, secondary, tertiary, quartenary structures. Pleated sheets, loops, alpha helices, soluble insoluble, structutal (keratin), and enzymes. Relationship to nucleic acid. Inhibiting one enzyme from working can eliminate an infection. For example antivirals like AZT and Protease Inhibitors can knock down viral titer in an HIV patient below measurement. Show protein structures. DNA Components. Nitrogen Bases, A,C,G,T (PURINES AND PYRIMIDINES)--Capable of bonding to one another by nitrogen bonds. Deoxyribose--capable of bonding to bases and to Phosphate PO 4 . Sequence of bases determines sequence of amino acids in protein. REVIEW OF FUNCTIONAL GROUPS AND THEIR PROPERTIES: OH, COOH, C=0, SH, PO 4 , NH 2 , C-O-C, C-SS-C, Disulfide bridge or bond. Visit PDB databases, look for Protease Inhibitors, AZT etc,...
