Water repelling groups near together in a protein they clump.Hydrophilic
Water attracting groups are likely to be pushed outside, affecting theprotein¶s final structure.
Explain, with the aid of diagrams, the term
, with referenceto the structure of haemoglobin.
The quaternary structure tends to be determined bythe tertiary, when it involves multiple polypeptides.E.g. Haemoglobin has a quaternary structure, it has4 polypeptide chains.
escribe, with the aid of diagrams, the structure of a collagen molecule
Collagen is a strong protein that is fibrous. It is asupportive tissue in animals; it is made of threepolypeptide chains that are very tightly coiled into atriple helix, interlinked by covalent bonds. Mineralsare able to bind to this helix to increase rigidity.
Tendons are made up mostly of collagen
Walls of arteries contain collagen to preventbursting from high pressure blood in them

Compare the structure and function of haemoglobin (as an example of a globular protein) and collagen (as an example of a fibrousprotein).
