Having nonpolar groups self-associate therefore minimizes the surface area of the solvent cage. Any number of environmental factors can disrupt the stabilizing forces and lead to the unfolding (or denaturing) of proteins. These include changes in temperature, ionic strength of the solution, the addition of cosolvents (such as ethanol), and even mechanical agitation. FUNCTIONS OF PROTEINS The three-dimensional shape of a protein determines the function of that protein. Proteins have the most diverse functions of any of the biological molecules.

Binding proteins are highly variable in their function. DNA-binding proteins have critical roles in the regulation of protein synthesis and regulation. Some binding CHAPTER 1: Structure and Function of Proteins and Their Constituent Amino Acids MCAT-3200077 book November 25, 2014 10:12 10 proteins are critical for transportation. Examples include the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin and the transport of electrons by cytochromes. ➤ Structural proteins function as their name implies. They provide support within cells and tissues.

When this occurs, transcription can be activated. In positive repressible operons, the activator proteins normally bind to the DNA. When an inhibitor is bound to the activator, it cannot bind to DNA and transcription is not activated. Eukaryotic Control of Gene Expression Gene expression can be regulated on a permanent level due to a process called differentiation. Because nearly all of the cells within the body are specialized, it makes sense that these cells really only need to express the genes related to that cell’s particular function.
