NON-CATALYTIC PROTEINS: providers of structure and functionality

two main groups
Two main groups




globular proteins
Globular proteins
  • Although long, they have short secondary structure sections (remember those?)
  • Lots of hydrophobic interactions in the core
  • Myoglobin and Haemoglobin
    • Contain ‘haem’ as the prosthetic group
    • Are related, but occur in different parts of the body
myoglobin and haemoglobin
Myoglobin and Haemoglobin
  • Read all about Myoglobin and Haemoglobin on p62-64 and complete the following activities as you go:
    • Haem (can you draw a simplified structure? How does it connect to the protein?)
  • Myoglobin
    • Name two amino acids that occur in Myoglobin, where are they located?
    • What is ‘oxygenation’?
myoglobin and haemoglobin1
Myoglobin and Haemoglobin
  • Haemoglobin
    • What is HbA? What does it look like?
    • What interaction causes α-globin to connect to β-globin?
    • How do the dimers bond together?
    • What is the difference between the T form and the R form?
    • What is ‘cooperative binding’?
    • How is HbF different to HbA?
  • Are also known as ‘antibodies’
  • Manufactured by ‘B’ cells (immune cells)
  • Foreign bodies are ‘antigens’ – usually polypeptides, can be polysaccharides, lipids, nucleic acids.
  • Antibodies bond to a region on the antigen called the ‘epitope’
  • Let’s study the Ig’s in Table 6.1
  • Read only the first paragraph on page 65 and define the following:
    • Hypervariable region
    • Heavy Chain and Light Chain
fibrous proteins
Fibrous Proteins
  • Mainly ‘structural’ proteins, but their structure determines their function
  • Collagen:
    • What does collagen look like?
    • How do the polypeptides hold together?
    • Define homopolymer and heteropolymer
    • What is ‘hydroxylation’? What is ‘glycosylation’? (see Fig 6.8)
    • Why does collagen need to be ‘strong’? Where is it located? What visible affect would collagen wear have on the body?
membrane proteins
Membrane Proteins
  • SYMPOSIUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Break into 3 groups: each group will study a membrane protein (integral, perpheral and lipid anchored)
  • You know the drill, study and report back…
private study
Private study
  • Read and summarise ‘When things get sticky!’ on p71
chapter 7
Chapter 7
  • ENZYMES: catalytic proteins
  • ‘Catalysts’ – speeder-upperers
  • Read the section ‘Naming enzymes’ – you will encounter this terminology a lot in your career!
  • Let’s all go through Table 7.1 – it’s very important to learn!
enzyme properties
Enzyme properties
  • Active site – portion of the protein where the ‘substrate’ fits – grabs, speeds up, lets go
  • Specific – usually specific to one, or closely related substrate
  • Possible Cofactor Relationship – may require ‘something else’ to make it all work
  • Efficient – high turnover, hundreds to thousands of products per second
  • Controllable – can be switched on and off
  • Location-controlled – only present where they are needed, possibly within organelles
activation energy
Activation Energy
  • Read ‘What slows spontaneous reactions’ to learn about Activation Energy
  • The ‘energy hill’ analogy is particularly useful to understand it.
  • Enzymes work by lowering the activation energy.
    • What is ‘transition-state stabilisation’?
    • What is ‘general acid-base catalysis’?
enzyme inhibition
Enzyme Inhibition
  • Competitive – inhibitor competes with the substrate for the active sites due to being chemically similar. Can be overcome by adding more substrate (causes displacement)
  • Non-competitive – inhibitor binds elsewhere on the enzyme, this stops the substrate from entering the active site. More effective, adding more substrate has no effect
  • Many drugs are inhibitors (both allopathic and natural!) – see table 7.2
enzyme control
Enzyme Control
  • Write definitions for the three main ways enzyme activity is controlled: allosterism, covalent modification, rate control.
  • Study the figures on p82-83 to help your understanding.
a big symposium
  • We are going to try a ‘contextual’ symposium tonight
  • Split into 3 groups and each study a ‘Clinical Example’ from the textbook related to enzymes. This will take time. Put together a short presentation assuming only very basic knowledge of your audience.
