A Nutrient made up of amino acids joined by peptide bonds.
Relationships      
Parents Nutrient A BiologicallyActiveSubstance required by an Organism. It is generally ingested as Food, and it is of primary interest because of its role in the biologic functioning of the Organism.
Children AbrinToxinAn extremely toxic protein found in the seeds of the rosary pea. Its mechanism, symptoms, and treatment are very similar to those of RicinToxin. However, AbrinToxin is roughly 75 times more toxic than RicinToxin.
 AntibodyAn immunoglobulin which is produced by the body and which has the ability to neutralize Antigens.
 EnzymeA complex Protein that is produced by living cells and which catalyzes specific biochemical reactions. There are six main types of enzymes: oxidoreductases, transferases, hydrolases, lyases, isomerases, and ligases.
 GeneRegulatoryProteinThe class of proteins that play the role of binding to DNA in order to turn genes on or off.
 LipoproteinThe class of lipoproteins.
 MotorProteinThe class of protein molecules whose role it is to generate movement in cells and tissues.
 ReceptorProteinThe class of protein molecules that play the role of signal detection and transmission to cell response machinery.
 RicinToxinAn extremely toxic protein found in the castor bean plant (ricinus communis). It is 200 times more toxic than cyanide, and it has no known antidote, and it causes vomiting, high fever, weakness, and death.
 SignalingProteinThe class of protein molecules whose role is to carry signals from cell to cell.
 SpecialPurposeProteinThe class of proteins whose role very specific.
 StorageProteinThe class of protein molecules whose role it is to store small molecules or ions.
 StructuralProteinThe class of proteins whose role it is to provide mechanical support to cells and tissues.
 TransportProteinThe class of protein molecules whose role it is to carry small molecules or ions.
