Description
o|82 Several dozen to 300 amino acids join to form a protein
 The strand of protein does not remain in a straight chain
 The electrical charges of the amino acids (caused by the side chain) cause the strand to bend and coil, as amino acids attract and repel one another
 This forms either a globular shape (soluble in water), or a fibrous shape (insoluble in water)
 The amino acids with electrically charged side chains attract water and are oriented on the outside of the protein structure
 The neutral amino acids repel water and are attracted to one another, so orientate in the centre of the protein away fro body fluids
 These interactions give each protein a unique structure

 • Secondary Repeating pattern of linear amino acids; alpha-helix (coiling) or beta sheet
