 Helices in a protein


Q: A protein X is formed by two chains with 80 amino acids in one chain and 58 in the other. These two chains are linked by disulfide bonds and all the essential amino acids are present in the structure, but not all the non-essential amino acids.  With this information, we can say that this protein is:


a) a globular protein


b) a fibrous protein


c) a conjugated protein


d) an incomplete protein


e) a complete protein


f) a hormone


g) an enzyme
