Proteins are the macromolecules coded in our DNA that function as a biocatalyst and build our body. Apart from Biological knowledge, there are spectacular concepts in the field of proteins. How does a protein produce a function, how do they interact, how did they evolve and how do protein mutations cause disease.
this is the process of photosynthesis...it all starts with the DNA,  the mRNA copies the genetic information from the DNA and makes a  strand of mRNA, this is then transported to the nucleus where the  tRNA combines with the mRNA to make codons (3 bases=1 codon) these  codons then go into a...

3.4=(32/y) * 100 --------> y=941.176g so, the least molecular  weight of insulin is 941.176g
The importance of this is to regulate the macromolecules in and out of membranesThe channel proteins and carrier proteins are important to the cell  for transportation functions mainly. They will both be involved in  transporting molecules or ions across the semi-permeable membrane  of the cell.
Every protein molecule sooner or later reaches the end of its  lifetime. This might be for example when oxidative damage has  degraded it to the point where it cannot fulfill its function.    The only option left to the cell in this case is to somehow get rid  of the damaged protein. A...
I'm not sure what you mean by 'lost its 3D' but I think you might  mean when a protein is broken down or heated it becomes denatured.
Precipitation of protein is the downstream processing of biological  products in order to concentrate proteins and rid them of various  contaminants.
Proteins are polymers!! Long chains of amino acids....
In general terms, proteins are molecules consisting of one or more  polypeptide chains. Proteins can be formed by about 40 to over 4000  amino acid residues, and to have a molecular mass from around 4  daltons to over 440 kD. Moreover, depending upon its function,  proteins can be formed by a...

Peripheral and integral proteins are in the plasma membranes. Cell receptors such as insulin receptor, chemokine receptors such as CXCR4, CD4, hormonal receptors are all peripheral proteins. They do normally trigger the signalling by binding its specific ligand at the cell surface.
Just about every function in your body
Yes there is a little amount of protein present in potatoes. It is about 2g per 100g of potato. They are rich in carbohydrates that gives energy.
An enzyme called protease
No, proteins are made up of amino acids. monosaccharaides are  simple sugars such as glucose, fructose and galactose
Yes genes are responsible for proteins, but they not directly "making" it. There are cellular machinery in the cell that will synthesis proteins. Genes are DNA that transcribe the message into mRNA. This in turn translated to proteins by the machinery such as ribosomes.
There are not enough nutrients to support cell growth and DNA is damage
RNA creates proteins by copying your DNAstructure.
Translation produces proteins.
They can not directly synthesize proteins themselves since they lack the machinery. Virus infect its host and integrate its genome into the host. The most system then recognize virus as its own and helps to synthesize viral proteins.
Not all of them are catalytic. There is a class of proteins called enzymes that are catalyzing biochemical reactions. Enzymes are take part in the reaction to speed by the reaction without consuming itself, meaning they can be recycled to the next reactions. Protease, lactase, APOBEC3G are some...
About 0.5g or protein can be found in 100 g honey. Honey is a rich source of carbohydrates and not proteins. Honey can be added to the protein rich food that pair up well.
