In this video, we are going to discuss the structure and uses of protein molecules.
Proteins are long-chain molecules made of strings of amino acids joined together. All amino acids are compounds with a similar basic structure: they have an amino group, a carboxyl group, and a side chain, or R group, that is specific to each amino acid.
There are 20 different amino acids.
Watch the full video to see just how important proteins are.
