Protein: The term protein is taken from the Greek word “Proteios” which means “first”. It is an organic compound which is present in all living cells. Proteins are composed of 15 to 25% nitrogen and about an equal amount of oxygen. In the form of enzymes, hormones, antibodies, and globulins, they catalyse, regulate, and protect the body chemistry. In the form of haemoglobin, myoglobin and various lipoproteins, they effect the transport of oxygen and other substances within an organism.
Peptides: Peptides are almost similar to Proteins and plays a key role in various biological activities. Peptides are made up of amino acids linked by amide bonds to each other. Peptides are also called as biological messengers because they often act as Hormones.
Protein Engineering: Proteins are not always optimized for the desired function. So, with protein engineering we can use molecular biology to manipulate protein sequences to get a desired product. With advancement in recombinant DNA technology and screening techniques, protein engineering has emerged as an important tool in developing proteins and enzymes of our interest.
Protein Functions: The gathering of proteins inside a cell decides its well-being and capacity. Proteins do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, capacity, and control of the body's tissues and organs. The three-dimensional structure of a protein is the key factor in deciding its functional properties. These three-dimensional structures are caused by the sequences of the amino acids present in polypeptide chains.
Enzymes: Almost all enzymes are proteins, that are capable of speed up chemical reactions in living organisms. Basically, enzymes provide an alternative reaction pathway with lower activation energy. They have the ability to modify any biomolecule, hence plays an key role in various processes like digestion and metabolism.
Proteomics: Proteins are vital part of the living organisms. Proteins are known to change in response to various conditions. Proteomics involves large scale analysis of protein compliment of a cell, tissue or organisms under specific conditions. Proteomics is consisted of analysis of protein structures and functions.
Protein Structures: Biopharmaceutical companies have started looking at large molecules and specifically to proteins as a therapeutic agent. A good understanding of the nature of protein structure and the conformational characteristics of the specific protein being formulated, is essential for the development of protein drug product.
Protein Purification: Protein purification is a method for isolating a specific protein from a mixture of several proteins of different molecular weight. Protein purification is essential for the characterization of the function, structure and interactions of the protein of interest.
Viral Proteins: Viral proteins are produced by virus. As viruses seize a lot of their host's cell hardware to help their life cycle, they encode not very many of their own genes; viral proteins are hence components of the viral envelope and capsid.
