Proteins

Science / Biology / Proteins: Polymers made up of amino acids that perform a wide variety of cellular functions. One of the classes of organic macromolecules that function as structural and control elements in living systems. Proteins are polymers of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds.

Glycoproteins

Science / Biology / Glycoproteins: Polysaccharides formed of sugars linked to proteins. On the outer surface of a membrane, they act as receptors for molecular signals originating outside the cell. MORE

Incomplete Proteins

Health / Fitness / Incomplete Proteins: Proteins which are low in one or more of the essential amino acids. MORE

Complete Proteins

Health / Fitness / Complete Proteins: Proteins that contain all the essential amino acids. MORE

Histone Proteins

Science / Biology / Histone Proteins: Proteins associated with DNA in eukaryote chromosomes. MORE

High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL)

Health / Fitness / High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL): Known as High-Density Lipoproteins that has a function to remove cholesterol from the blood, carrying it to the liver. Often called good cholesterol. MORE
