 Primary
Structure is
just the specific order
of amino acids in the
chain.
 Secondary Structures
are either a helix or a
pleated sheet formed
form hydrogen bonds
reacting between the
amino acids.
 Tertiary
Structure
occurs because of
attractions between
the alpha helices and
pleated sheets.
 Quaternary
Structure
is a protein consisting
of more than one
amino acid chain.
With a partner, discuss the
following question:
