Although protein structure appears to be very complex, the chemical properties that determine protein structure are relatively simple. The Protein Folding with 15 Tack and a 4-Foot Mini Toober Activity allows your students to explore how the unique chemical properties of the amino acids determine the final shape of a protein. The amino acid sequence not only contains the blueprint for the protein’s structure, but also encodes the various conformations available to the peptide chain; these conformational changes are relevant for folding, binding, and activity. Our lab uses a combination of biophysical, structural, biochemical, and computational techniques to ... 1. The binding or active site which gives your protein its specific function. 2. Which amino acids are located in your protein’s active site. 3. Whether the amino acids in the protein’s active site are polar, charged, or hydrophobic.! 4. What type of outside molecule binds to your protein's binding/active site.! 5.
