(

)

We have to include them in our daily diet because the human body doesn´t synthetize

A

them

Neurotransmitters (serotonin,
dopamin )

(

)

It corresponds to the sequence of amino acids in a peptide chain

B

Structural

(

)

These bonds are the responsible of secondary structure of proteins

C

Fibrous

(

)

They are known as high quality proteins because they contain all essential amino acids

D

Peptide bond

(

)

They are produced in an organ but act in other place of the body regulating certain

E

Hydrogen bond, disulfide bond

functions
(

)

They fight against strange bodies in the organism. An example is gamma globulin

F

Globular

(

)

Change in the tertiary structure of proteins caused by the action of heat or acids

G

Primary structure

(

)

Water soluble, spherical proteins

H

Hormones

(

)

The primary structure of proteins is formed thanks to this bond

I

Antibodies

(

)

Because fibrous proteins form the tissues, is is said that they are

J

Animal proteins: milk, meat and egg

. . . . . . . . . . . proteins
(

)

They transmit nervous pulses between cells

K

Essential amino acids

(

)

Non soluble proteins, long shaped

M

Denaturation

1.

These proteins catalyze reactions in living beings. Examples are proteases and
amylases

2.

Two examples of proteins having alpha helix secondary structure

_____________________________
a) __________________________
b)___________________________

3.

This proteins changes its secondary structure form alpha to beta according the
amount of humidity

___________________________

4.

Protein with quaternary structure formed by 4 units

___________________________

5.

Protein having secondary structure type beta or zigzag

___________________________

6.

Protein that acts as an hormone and regulates the amount of glucose in blood
___________________________

7.

Protein that carries oxygen in the human body

___________________________

8.

It is found in skin, teeth and tendons
