MeSH Heading
Proteins
Tree Number(s)
D12.776
Unique ID
D011506
RDF Unique Identifier
http://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D011506
Annotation
general only; prefer specific protein or specific precoordinated protein group terms such as EYE PROTEINS; BACTERIAL PROTEINS; DIETARY PROTEINS; etc.; primary protein structure = AMINO ACID SEQUENCE; protein structure referring to protein architecture = PROTEIN CONFORMATION or its specifics: PROTEIN STRUCTURE, SECONDARY; PROTEIN STRUCTURE, TERTIARY; or PROTEIN STRUCTURE, QUATERNARY
Scope Note
Linear POLYPEPTIDES that are synthesized on RIBOSOMES and may be further modified, crosslinked, cleaved, or assembled into complex proteins with several subunits. The specific sequence of AMINO ACIDS determines the shape the polypeptide will take, during PROTEIN FOLDING, and the function of the protein.
