Protein

Science / Chemistry / Protein: A complex polymer made by linking together amino acid molecules. Proteins sometimes contain non-amino acid components such as metal ions or porphyrin rings embedded within. MORE

Polymorphism

Science / Genetics / Polymorphism: Difference in dna sequence among individuals that may underlie differences in health. Genetic variations occurring in more than 1% of a population would be considered useful polymorphisms for genetic MORE

Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)

Health / Fitness / Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL): A core of cholesterol surrounded by protein, often referred to as bad cholesterol. MORE

Proteinoids

Science / Biology / Proteinoids: Polymers of amino acids formed spontaneously from inorganic molecules; have enzyme-like properties and can catalyze chemical reactions. MORE

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. Prot MORE
