The full, three-dimensional conformation formed by an entire polypeptide chain- including the sheets, coils, and helices between the n and c-termini-is sometimes referred to as the __________ structure. If the protein molecule is formed as a complex of more than one polypeptide chain, then the complete structure is a _____________ structure.
_____________ is defined as any segment of a polypeptide chain that can fold independently into a compact and stable structure.
What do they serve as from which many larger proteins are constructed from?
How many amino acids are they between?
Tertiary structure, quatrinary structure.
40-350 amino acids long.
