Protein Structure, Quaternary .
Protein Structures, Quaternary .
Quaternary Protein Structures .
Quaternary Protein Structure .
The characteristic 3-dimensional shape and arrangement of multimeric proteins (aggregates of more than one polypeptide chain). .
Protein Conformation .
Conformation, Protein .
Conformations, Protein .
Protein Conformations .
The characteristic 3-dimensional shape of a protein, including the secondary, supersecondary (motifs), tertiary (domains) and quaternary structure of the peptide chain. PROTEIN STRUCTURE, QUATERNARY describes the conformation assumed by multimeric proteins (aggregates of more than one polypeptide chain). .
Protein Structure, Tertiary .
Tertiary Protein Structure .
Protein Structures, Tertiary .
Tertiary Protein Structures .
The level of protein structure in which combinations of secondary protein structures (ALPHA HELICES; BETA SHEETS; loop regions, and AMINO ACID MOTIFS) pack together to form folded shapes. Disulfide bridges between cysteines in two different parts of the polypeptide chain along with other interactions between the chains play a role in the formation and stabilization of tertiary structure. .

Protein Structure, Primary .
The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION. .
