Transcript of Amino Acids

the chemical units or "building blocks" of the body that make up proteins Humans can produce 10 of the 20 amino acids
aspartic acid
glutamic acid
serine atyrosine Amino Acids make up 75% of the human body protiens consist of long chains
of amino acids connected by peptide linkages
protiens primary structure is the sequence of amino acids in a molecule Amino Acids Protiens Enzymes highly energized protein molecules made of amino acids. They are organic catalyst that speed up biochemical reactions. if even one amino acid in
the enzyme is changed,
the enzyme may lose its
catalyst activity To form protein, the amino
acids are linked by dehydration
synthesis to form peptide bonds.
The chain of amino acids is also
known as a polypeptide Many enzymes consist of a
protein and a non-protein enzymes are catalysts that make many essential biochemical reactions ‘happen’ The End
