A very large, naturally occurring polyamide formed from a selection of the 20 or so naturally occurring amino acids.
Proteins sometimes contain non-amino acid components such as metal ions or porphyrin rings embedded within.
Each polypeptide chains has a characteristic sequence of amino acids linked by peptide bonds. The molar mass is usually above 100,000.
The three-dimensional conformation of a protein in its native folded state.
The regulation of the rate of a protein's synthesis by regulation of the rate of translocation of the ribosome.
Proteins that span a membrane and transport specific molecules across the membrane.
- ProteomicsDB A joint effort of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and SAP AG. It is dedicated to expedite the identification of the human proteome and its use across the scientific community.
- Human Proteome Map An interactive resource to the scientific community by integrating the massive peptide sequencing result from the draft map of the human proteome project.
