PROTEIN STRUCTURE • PRIMARY STRUCTURE • The primary structure is the specific sequence of amino acids i.e. the order that they are bonded together. • The exact order that amino acids are bonded together is determined by the information stored in genes. PROTEIN STRUCTURE • PRIMARY STRUCTURE (contd) • Through processes called transcription and translation, • DNA provides all the necessary information for cells to produce the exact primary structure for thousands of different proteins. • The primary structure determines the secondary and tertiary structures of proteins.
