Types and Chemical Composition of Protein

Interestingly, plants incorporate two types of proteins, whereas humans and animals incorporate over 100, 000 types of proteins that differ when it comes to their molecular structures. If we talk about their chemical composition, proteins are highly complex compounds that are made of 53% of carbon, 22% of oxygen, 17% of nitrogen, 7% of hydrogen, and 1% of sulfur or iodine.

Proteins: Chain-Like Structures, Made of Amino Acids

About 23 naturally occurring amino acids compose proteins through being in various combinations. They link together to make a chain-like structure. In another language, we can say that one amino acid is a substructure that contributes in making of a protein compound.

9 Essential Amino Acids

9 of these 23 amino acids are termed as essential amino acids or MATTVILPHLY. Here every alphabet of MATTVILPHLY signs a term:

“M” denotes Methionine
“A” denotes Argenine
“T” denotes Tryptophan
“T” denotes Threonine
“V” denotes Valine
“I” denotes Isoleucine
“L” denotes Leucine
“Ph” denotes Phenyl alanine
“Ly” denotes Lysine

Other Amino Acids

Alanine
Aspartic Acid
Cystine
Glutamic Acid
Glycine
Histidine
Hydroxyglutamic Acid
Hydroxyproline
Iodogorgoic Acid
Norleucine
Proline
Serine
Thyroxine
Tyrosine

So, the proteins are nothing but the arrangement of various amino acids in different combinations. In fact, amino acids are the prime structural material of our body, as they are the basic unit of a protein compound.

Whenever you hear the word “protein” next time, then think of those chain-like structures made of amino acids instead of eggs, meat, or nuts.

Hymn/Rhyme of the Day
I wish the way to someone’s heart could have a glass door!
We could see through it and know more!We could go inside and reside or not,
But could know their feelings about us, and see their every thought!We could know how they think about us!
And could get rid of all the complexities by clearance, thus!
