Slide2AP Biology2008-2009 Proteins Multipurpose molecules
Slide3AP BiologyProteins, that’s some good shit Most structurally & functionally diverse group Function: involved in almost everything enzymes (pepsin, DNA polymerase) structure (keratin, collagen) carriers & transport (hemoglobin, aquaporin) cell communication signals (insulin & other hormones) receptors defense (antibodies) movement (actin & myosin) storage (bean seed proteins)
Slide4AP BiologyProteins Structure monomer = amino acids 20 different amino acids polymer = polypeptide protein can be one or more polypeptide chains folded & bonded together large & complex molecules complex 3-D shape Rubisco hemoglobin growth hormones H 2 O
Slide5AP BiologyAmino acids Structure central carbon amino group carboxyl group (acid) R group (side chain) variable group different for each amino acid confers unique chemical properties to each amino acid like 20 different letters of an alphabet can make many words (proteins) — N — H H C—OH || O R | —C— | H Oh, I get it ! amino = NH 2 acid = COOH
Slide6AP BiologyEffect of different R groups: Nonpolar amino acids Why are these nonpolar & hydrophobic? Why are these nonpolar & hydrophobic? nonpolar & hydrophobic
Slide7AP BiologyEffect of different R groups: Polar amino acids polar or charged & hydrophilic Why are these polar & hydrophillic? Why are these polar & hydrophillic?
Slide8AP BiologyIonizing in cellular waters H+ donors H+ donors
Slide9AP BiologyIonizing in cellular waters H+ acceptors H+ acceptors
Slide10AP BiologySulfur containing amino acids Form disulfide bridges covalent cross links betweens sulfhydryls stabilizes 3-D structure You wondered why perms smell like rotten eggs? H-S – S-H H-S – S-H
Slide11AP BiologyBuilding proteins Peptide bonds covalent bond between NH 2 (amine) of one amino acid & COOH (carboxyl) of another C–N bond peptide bond dehydration synthesis H 2 O
Slide12AP BiologyBuilding proteins Polypeptide chains have direction N-terminus = NH 2 end C-terminus = COOH end repeated sequence (N-C-C) is the polypeptide backbone
Slide13AP BiologyProtein structure & function hemoglobin Function depends on structure 3-D structure twisted, folded, coiled into unique shape collagen pepsin
Slide14AP BiologyPrimary (1°) structure Order of amino acids in chain amino acid sequence determined by gene (DNA) slight change in amino acid sequence can affect protein’s structure & its function even just one amino acid change can make all the difference! lysozyme: enzyme in tears & mucus that kills bacteria
Slide15AP BiologySickle cell anemia I’m hydrophilic ! But I’m hydrophobic ! Just 1 out of 146 amino acids !
Slide16AP BiologySecondary (2°) structure “ Local folding ” folding along short sections of polypeptide interactions between adjacent amino acids H bonds weak bonds between R groups forms sections of 3-D structure -helix -pleated sheet
Slide17AP BiologySecondary (2°) structure
Slide18AP BiologyTertiary (3°) structure “ Whole molecule folding ” interactions between distant amino acids hydrophobic interactions cytoplasm is water-based nonpolar amino acids cluster away from water H bonds & ionic bonds disulfide bridges covalent bonds between sulfurs in sulfhydryls (S–H) anchors 3-D shape
Slide19AP BiologyQuaternary (4°) structure More than one polypeptide chain bonded together only then does polypeptide become functional protein hydrophobic interactions collagen = skin & tendons hemoglobin
Slide20AP BiologyProtein structure (review) amino acid sequence peptide bonds 1° determined by DNA R groups H bonds R groups hydrophobic interactions disulfide bridges (H & ionic bonds) 3° multiple polypeptides hydrophobic interactions 4° 2°
Slide21AP BiologyProtein denaturation Unfolding a protein conditions that disrupt H bonds, ionic bonds, disulfide bridges temperature pH salinity alter 2° & 3° structure alter 3-D shape destroys functionality some proteins can return to their functional shape after denaturation, many cannot In Biology, size doesn’t matter, SHAPE matters !
