QuestionsHow are quaternary proteins formed?
Biology Ease Staff asked 12 months ago

Quaternary proteins are formed by the association of two or more polypeptide chains or subunits. These subunits come together to form a larger, functional protein complex. The subunits can be identical or different, and they are held together by various non-covalent interactions such as hydrogen bonds, salt bridges, and hydrophobic interactions. The quaternary structure is essential for the function of many proteins, including enzymes, antibodies, and hemoglobin.
