Molecules of Life Chapter 3 Part 2

3.5 Proteins – Diversity in Structure and Function : 

3.5 Proteins – Diversity in Structure and Function Proteins are the most diverse biological molecule (structural, nutritious, enzyme, transport, communication, and defense proteins) All proteins are made of amino acids What makes one different from the other? The ORDER of the amino acids

Proteins and Amino Acids : 

Proteins and Amino Acids Protein An organic compound composed of one or more chains of amino acids Amino acid A small organic compound with an amine group (—NH3+), a carboxyl group (—COO-, the acid), and one or more variable groups (R group)

Amino Acid Structure : 

Amino Acid Structure

Polypeptides : 

Polypeptides Protein synthesis involves the formation of amino acid chains called polypeptides Polypeptide A chain of amino acids bonded together by peptide bonds in a condensation reaction between the amine group of one amino acid and the carboxyl group of another amino acid

Peptide Bond Formation : 

Peptide Bond Formation

Slide 8: 

Fig. 3-16a, p. 44 A DNA encodes the order of amino acids in a new polypeptide chain. Methionine (met) is typically the first amino acid. B In a condensation reaction, a peptide bond forms between the methionine and the next amino acid, alanine (ala) in this example. Leucine (leu) will be next. Think about polarity, charge, and other properties of functional groups that become neighbors in the growing chain.

Slide 9: 

Fig. 3-16b, p. 45 C A peptide bond forms between the alanine and leucine. Tryptophan (trp) will be next. The chain is starting to twist and fold as atoms swivel around some bonds and attract or repel their neighbors. D The sequence of amino acid subunits in this newly forming peptide chain is now met–ala–leu–trp. The process may continue until there are hundreds or thousands of amino acids in the chain.

Levels of Protein Structure : 

Levels of Protein Structure Primary structure The unique amino acid sequence of a protein Secondary structure The polypeptide chain folds and forms hydrogen bonds between amino acids

Levels of Protein Structure : 

Levels of Protein Structure Tertiary structure A secondary structure is compacted into structurally stable units called domains Forms a functional protein Quaternary structure Some proteins consist of two or more folded polypeptide chains in close association Example: hemoglobin

3.6 Why Is Protein Structure So Important? : 

3.6 Why Is Protein Structure So Important? When a protein’s structure goes awry, so does its function This is called DENATURATION caused by: Temp pH Detergents salt

Slide 18: 

Fig. 3-17b, p. 45 b Protein secondary structure: A coiled (helical) or sheetlike array held in place by hydrogen bonds (dotted lines) between different parts of the polypeptide chain. helix (coil) sheet

Slide 19: 

Fig. 3-17c, p. 45 c Protein tertiary structure: A chain’s coils, sheets, or both fold and twist into stable, functional domains such as barrels or pockets. barrel

Slide 20: 

Fig. 3-17d, p. 45 d Protein quaternary structure: two or more polypeptide chains associated as one molecule.

Just One Wrong Amino Acid… : 

Just One Wrong Amino Acid… Hemoglobin contains four globin chains, each with an iron-containing heme group that binds oxygen and carries it to body cells In sickle cell anemia, a DNA mutation changes a single amino acid in a beta chain, which changes the shape of the hemoglobin molecule, causing it to clump and deform red blood cells

Globin Chains in Hemoglobin : 

Globin Chains in Hemoglobin

Slide 25: 

Fig. 3-18a, p. 46 alpha globin heme A Globin. The secondary structure of this protein includes several helices. The coils fold up to form a pocket that cradles heme, a functional group with an iron atom at its center.

Slide 26: 

Fig. 3-18b, p. 46 alpha globin alpha globin beta globin beta globin B Hemoglobin is one of the proteins with quaternary structure. It consists of four globin molecules held together by hydrogen bonds. To help you distinguish among them, the two alpha globin chains are shown here in green, and the two beta globin chains are in brown.

Slide 28: 

Fig. 3-19a, p. 47 valine histidine leucine threonine proline glutamic acid A Normal amino acid sequence at the start of the hemoglobin beta chain. glutamic acid

Slide 29: 

Fig. 3-19b, p. 47 valine histidine leucine threonine proline valine glutamic acid B One amino acid substitution results in the abnormal beta chain of HbS molecules. The sixth amino acid in such chains is valine, not glutamic acid.

Slide 30: 

Fig. 3-19c, p. 47 C Glutamic acid carries a negative charge; valine carries no charge. This difference changes the protein so it behaves differently. At low oxygen levels, HbS molecules stick together and form rod-shaped clumps that distort normally rounded red blood cells into sickle shapes. (A sickle is a farm tool that has a crescent-shaped blade.) sickled cell normal cell

Right, range of symptoms for a person with two mutated genes for hemoglobin’s beta chain.

Proteins Undone – Denaturation : 

Proteins Undone – Denaturation Proteins function only as long as they maintain their correct three-dimensional shape Heat, changes in pH, salts, and detergents can disrupt the hydrogen bonds that maintain a protein’s shape When a protein loses its shape and no longer functions, it is denatured
