The number of proteins encoded in a genome roughly corresponds to the number of genes (although there may be a significant number of genes that encode RNA of protein e.g. ribosomal RNAs). Viruses typically encode a few to a few hundred proteins archaea and bacteria a few hundred to a few thousand while eukaryotes typically encode a few thousand up to tens of thousands of proteins (see genome size for a list of examples).
Proteins are essential nutrients for the human body. They are one of the building blocks of body tissue and can also serve as a fuel source. As a fuel proteins provide as much energy density as carbohydrates: 4 kcal (17 kJ) per gram; in contrast lipids provide 9 kcal (37 kJ) per gram. The most important aspect and defining characteristic of protein from a nutritional standpoint is its amino acid composition. Proteins are polymer chains made of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. During human digestion
Protein biosynthesis (or protein synthesis) is a core biological process occurring inside cells balancing the loss of cellular proteins (via degradation or export) through the production of new proteins. Proteins perform a number of critical functions as enzymes structural proteins or hormones.
Membrane proteins are common proteins that are part of or interact with biological membranes.Membrane proteins fall into several broad categories depending on their location. Integral membrane proteins are a permanent part of a cell membrane and can either penetrate the membrane (transmembrane) or associate with one or the other side of a membrane (integral monotopic).
A viral protein is both a component and a product of a virus.Viral proteins are grouped according to their functions and groups of viral proteins include structural proteins nonstructural proteins regulatory proteins and accessory proteins . Viruses are non-living and do not have the means to reproduce on their own instead depending on their host cell’s resources in order to reproduce.
In biology histones are highly basic …
