Introduction of protein structures

To enable to perform proteins biological function, protein fold into one or more specific spatial conformations driven by noncovalent interactions Hydrogen bonding, ionic interactions, van der Waals forces and hydrophobic packing 3D protein structures are necessary for understanding the functions of protein at molecular level
Protein structure: from amino acid to quaternary structure
Hemoglobin: oxy-deoxy states

Noncovalent interactions for protein structure and function

Ionic bond A bond formed by the attraction between two oppositely charged ions Hydrogen bond An attractive interaction of a hydrogen atom with an electronegative atom, like N,O, and F
Potential energy of Na and Cl Potential energy of Na and Cl

Noncovalent interactions for protein structure and function

van der Waals force
Attractive or repulsive force between molecules

Hydrophobic interaction
The physical property of a molecule (known as a hydrophobe) that is repelled from a mass of water
An example of van der Waals force: Gecko climbs on the glass An example of hydrophobic interaction: Water drops on hydrophobic surface
