PLAY Animation: Introduction to Protein Structure Copyright 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Amino acid Amino acid Amino acid Amino acid Amino acid (a) Primary structure:

The sequence of amino acids forms the polypeptide chain. PLAY Animation: Primary Structure Copyright 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 2.19a a-Helix: The primary chain is coiled to form a spiral structure, which is stabilized by hydrogen bonds. b-Sheet: The primary chain zig-zags back and forth forming a pleated sheet. Adjacent strands are held together by hydrogen bonds.

(b) Secondary structure: The primary chain forms spirals (a-helices) and sheets (b-sheets). PLAY Animation: Secondary Structure Copyright 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.

(c) Tertiary structure: Superimposed on secondary structure. a-Helices and/or b-sheets are

folded up to form a compact globular molecule held together by intramolecular bonds. PLAY Animation: Tertiary Structure Copyright 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.
