Abstract

  Proteins; the workhorses of the cells of living organisms, are produced from instructions encoded into cellular DNA. The protein identity is dictated by a unique sequence of twenty chemicals known as amino acids which first come together in various combinations to form longer chains of polypeptides. So, called because they are held together by covalent linkages-the peptide bonds, these polypeptides in turn assume a 3D structure augmented by various non-covalent associations such as hydrogen bonding, electrostatic interactions, hydrophobic forces and van der waals forces and often the covalent disulfide bonds. This allows proteins the liberty of being structural and functional building blocks in the cells, earning the reputation as “workhorses of the cells” and playing many roles in cellular physiology [1].
