Bioinformatics and Predicting Protein Structure

GENES-$BYVWK

Protein structure consists of four levels of organization: primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary structure. Protein structure prediction is an important goal of bioinformatics.

The process of predicting the structure is based on examining its

A

amino acid sequence, which makes up its primary structure.

B

bonds formed with lipids, producing lipoproteins, determining its secondary structure.

C

hydrogen bonds formed with specific nucleic acid sequences (e.g., mRNA and DNA), making up its tertiary structure.
