Secondary Structure Tertiary Structure Amino acids 1 The primary structure is a series of amino acids bound in a chain. Amino acids display small charged functional groups (red symbols). 2 The secondary structure develops when CO and NH groups on adjacent amino acids form hydrogen bonds. This action folds the chain into local configurations called the helix and -pleated sheet. Most proteins have both types of secondary structures. Primary structure -pleated sheet N N H O C C C C O Secondary structure N H N C O Detail of hydrogen bond Disulfide bond 3 The tertiary structure forms when portions of the secondary structure further interact by forming covalent disulfide bonds and additional interactions. From this emerges a stable three-dimensional molecule. Depending on the protein, this may be the final functional state. S S Tertiary structure Quaternary Structure O C helix Projected 3-dimensional shape (note grooves and projections) 4 The quaternary structure exists only in proteins that consist of more than one polypeptide chain. Shown here is a model of the cholera toxin, composed

of five separate polypeptides, each one shown in a different color.
