a.) Although the hydroxyl group attached to the hydroxyproline would stabilize collagen, fluorine
was chosen due to its ability to stabilize the network of water molecules throughout because of
its large electronegative effects and thus helped with
A prosthetic group of a protein is a non-protein structure that is:
a ligand of the protein.
a part of the secondary structure of
a substrate of the protein.
permanently associated with the
transiently bound to the protein.
Proteins are the most abundant biomacromolecule with thousands of different kinds found in
a single cell.
What statement is not true concerning hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon?
they make up 99% of the mass of most cells.
they are the lightest elements capable of efficiently forming one, two, three, and
four bonds respectively.
they are the only element
The spatial arrangement of atoms in a protein or any part of a protein is called its [x].
The possible conformations of a protein include any structural state it can achieve without
breaking covalent bonds.
A 1.0 M solution of a compound with 2 ionizable groups (pKas = 6.2 and 9.5; 100 mL total)
has a pH of 6.8. If a biochemist adds 60 mL of 1.0 M HCl to this solution, the solution will
change to pH:
The pH cannot be determined from t
