I. Answer 1. What do you know about proteins?

Proteins are important molecules in cells, is one macromolecule organic. They are compound of large amino acid chains and distingue of the rest of the macromolecule by containing Nitrogen; they are involucre in the many processes of the organism, such as: the formation of membranes of the cells (structure), bioregulation (enzymes) and defense (antibodies). The structure three-dimensional and specific function of proteins this defined by the sequence of amino acids, this information this codified in the DNA, therefore the protein synthesis from DNA.

Proteins can be described according their function, for example: some types of hormones, transmit signals to coordinate biological processes between different cells, performing as messenger; other may be the transporter the small molecules within cells and throughout the body. They are also can be classified based on Shape (Globular or Corpuscular Proteins, Fibrous or Fibrillar Proteins), composition and solubility (Fibrous or Fibrillar Proteins, Conjugated or Complex Proteins or Heteroproteins) on the type of prosthetic group present.

There are four structural levels of organization to describe the Proteins based on the complexity of the molecule. They are Primary Structure, Secondary structure, Tertiary structure and Quaternary structure.

...Protein Article When you think about protein you think about muscle. However, beyond the visible assets of an athlete’s strength, protein is an essential nutrient that the body uses to build new cells, maintain tissues, and help the body perform basic functions. There are two kinds of proteins; complete proteins and incomplete proteins. Complete proteins are also known as high-quality proteins which are found in meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. A high-quality protein source is referred to as “Complete” in that it provides all of the essential amino acids that make up a protein. These proteins are also absorbed by the body more efficiently than low-quality proteins. Incomplete proteins, also known as complementary proteins, are not a sufficient source of protein unless combined with other incomplete proteins to supply adequate amounts of essential amino acids. Amino acids are commonly referred to as the building blocks of protein. Essential amino acids are not produced by the body and therefore essential that they are obtained as part of one’s diet. Although amino acids are each composed of hydrogen, an amino group, an acid group, and a side group, each amino acid is unique in structure. The body needs approximately 20 different amino acids to make up the proteins the body needs. These amino acids link up to other nutrients to form different types of compounds through a process called protein synthesis. This process produces lipoproteins, which transport......

...or a powdered substance in a big plastic container when I saw the word protein. I now know proteins come in many different forms, and not only from the above mentioned sources. According to “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (2012), “The protein in the foods we eat is digested into amino acids that are later used to replace these proteins in our bodies” (Nutrition for Everyone). Proteins in our diet can be found as either complete or incomplete proteins. A complete protein contains all of the essential amino acids. These are sometimes called high quality proteins. Animal-based proteins such as meat, fish and milk are considered complete proteins. An incomplete protein is one that lacks one or more of the essential amino acids. Two or more incomplete proteins consumed together form a complementary protein when they are low in different acids. Together two incomplete proteins can offer all of the essential amino acids the body needs. According to Grosvenor (2006), amino acids are “conditionally essential” meaning they are only needed in certain situations to make proteins the body cannot produce on its own. The nitrogen in amino acids distinguishes protein from fat or carbohydrates. Amino acids provide the nitrogen needed to make a protein. Our DNA provides the roadmap for breaking down proteins and creating other proteins (Nutrition; Everyday Choices). A person’s recommended intake of protein is 10-35% of your daily calorie intake. This percentage varies based......

...Protein Article Research Jessica SCI/241 Carolyn Farhy February 19, 2014 Proteins are considered the building block of the body from the amino acids, and are very vital in the maintenance of body tissue, including development and repair. Proteins are part of every cell, tissue and organs in our body. It is broken down and is replaced by the protein that we eat in our diet. Protein is also important for healthy hair, skin, and nails and most importantly, protein will also help our energy level. There are different types of proteins and they correlate with how many amino acids are in the protein. A complete source of protein is one that provides all of the amino acids, while an incomplete protein is low in one or more of the essential amino acids. Finally, a complementary protein has two or more incomplete protein sources that when put together have an enough amounts of all amino acids. There are 20 different amino acids that are found within proteins. We can produce 10 of the 20 amino acids and the remaining needs to be supplied in the food we eat. While protein is a vital part of eating healthy there are certain risks if you don’t get enough or if you eat too much protein. Risks with protein deficiency could include a type of malnutrition would could result in diarrhea, loss of muscle mass, and fatigue. It could also hinder your body by frequent infections and swelling. On the opposite side, protein will contribute to overall calorie intake and animal sources......

...Amanda, I read your posting about the benefits about protein in our diets but I specifically focused my response research on the affects too much protein can have on our bodies. You mentioned in your post about high protein diets and how it can damage the kidneys, and I found it particularly interesting and decided to research more. According to research, high protein diets can cause harmful effects on renal (kidney) function and are believed to be due to the overwork induced by such diets on the kidneys (Aparicio, Nebot, Garcia-del Moral, Machado-Vilchez, Porres, Sanchez and Aranda, 2013). High protein diets cause elevation of glomerular filtration rate and hyper-filtration which was concluded through experiments done on pigs who have similar kidneys as humans (Aparicio, Nebot, Garcia-del Moral, Machado-Vilchez, Porres, Sanchez and Aranda, 2013). The kidney plays a central role in protein metabolism and processes regulated by the kidneys are directly affected by dietary protein intake (Aparicio, Nebot, Garcia-del Moral, Machado-Vilchez, Porres, Sanchez and Aranda, 2013). Therefore, Amanda I agree with you that high protein diets are popular amongst today’s society because I am constantly seeing more ads for “high-protein” products that help with weight loss – such as protein shakes and powders- and menu item options when I go out. But we have to be well informed and cautious when consuming protein and how much we should be ingested, because as you can see, it can have......

...Protein This paper will discuss how proteins contribute to a balanced diet and the discoveries I made when I consciously monitored my caloric intake and specifically the proteins contained within the total intake of calories. Protein is found in every cell in your body and is a necessary part of our diet. Two to three servings of protein each day will help you get the necessary amount of protein, which can help your body's cells and tissues function properly. Protein is an important part of nutrition and different animal and plant sources of protein provide different types of amino acids Proteins are made up of amino acids, which are used to replace old proteins in cells and tissues that have been broken down and need to be replaced. Proteins are biological polymers composed of amino acids. Amino acids, linked together by peptide bonds, form a polypeptide chain. One or more polypeptide chains twisted into a 3-D shape form a protein. Proteins have complex shapes that include various folds, loops, and curves. Folding in proteins happens spontaneously Proteins are made up of amino acids, and they are the “building blocks” of life. Our skin, muscles, tendons, cartilage, even hair and nails, are all because of protein. Protein helps form enzymes, hormones, antibodies and new tissues. It transports important nutrients in and out of those cells. There are nine amino acids known as “essential” amino acids, and therefore must be derived from what we eat. Arginine classified......

...We all know that we need protein in our diet, but not everyone understands why. There are several ways people consume protein such as shakes, fad diets and pills, but it is not necessary if you eat the right foods. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2012), “You might think Americans were at risk for not eating enough. In fact, most of us eat more protein than we need.” Our bodies contain numerous key elements in every single one of our cells. Proteins are vital to the way we function. Because of this, our bodies are consistently working to utilize and replenish the proteins we consume. Protein is what builds, repairs, and maintains our body tissues (ex. hair, skin, organs, muscles, etc.) and gives us energy. It also assists with the production of certain hormones, enzymes and helps our bodies build antibodies to fight off infections and diseases. * Proteins are made up of 20 different amino acids, which is why they are so effective. When amino acids join together, different proteins can be created. Our bodies are capable of making some amino acids, but there are others that we can only get from our diet. These are referred to as essential amino acids. There are two different labels we use to categorize protein sources now. The first is a complete protein source. What makes it complete is that it provides you with all of the essential amino acids that your body needs. If the protein source lacks one or more of the essential amino acids, it is......
