Protein consists of small molecules called amino acids, joinedtogether into long molecules called polypeptides. Each polypeptidehas a very specific sequence of amino acids. Depending on thesequence, the molecule folds into a specific shape, sometimesinvolving other molecules, with a certain distribu…tion of electriccharge on its surface. In short, the physical and chemicalproperties of a protein can be controlled by varying the sequenceof amino acids. (MORE)

Proteins are macromolecules that are made and used by all livingthings, relatively big molecules (polymers) that consist of smallerbuilding blocks (monomers) called amino acids. Each amino acid is achemical composed of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen andsome of them have other elements like s…ulfur. These amino acids bond to each other by a bond called the peptidebond. After the linear protein molecule forms it folds into a 3Dstructure producing the active protein. In some cases severalfolded protein molecules stick together (and sometimes with othernonprotein molecules, e.g. heme units in the case of hemoglobin tocarry oxygen in the blood) forming a complex that can do more thanthe individual proteins can do alone. Proteins of differing types perform most active functional andstructural roles in both living cells and in viruses. (MORE)
A protein is a nutrient that supplies the body with energy forbuilding and repairing tissue and cells. From Wikipedia.com: Proteins are large organic compounds made of amino acidsarranged in a linear chain and joined together by peptide bondsbetween the carboxyl and amino groups of adjacent am…ino acidresidues. The sequence of amino acids in a protein is defined by agene and encoded in the genetic code. Although this genetic codespecifies 20 "standard" amino acids plus selenocysteine and - incertain archaea - pyrrolysine, the residues in a protein aresometimes chemically altered in post-translational modification.This can happen either before the protein is used in the cell, oras part of control mechanisms. Proteins can also work together toachieve a particular function, and they often associate to formstable complexes. Like other biological macromolecules such as polysaccharides andnucleic acids, proteins are essential parts of organisms andparticipate in every process within cells. Many proteins areenzymes that catalyze biochemical reactions and are vital tometabolism. Proteins also have structural or mechanical functions,such as actin and myosin in muscle and the proteins in thecytoskeleton, which form a system of scaffolding that maintainscell shape. Other proteins are important in cell signaling, immuneresponses, cell adhesion, and the cell cycle. Proteins are alsonecessary in animals' diets, since animals cannot synthesize allthe amino acids they need and must obtain essential amino acidsfrom food. Through the process of digestion, animals break downingested protein into free amino acids that are then used inmetabolism. The word protein comes from the Greek word ÏÏÏÏÎµÎ¹Î¿Ï ( proteios ) "primary". Proteins were first described andnamed by the Swedish chemist JÃ¶ns Jakob Berzelius in 1838. However,the central role of proteins in living organisms was not fullyappreciated until 1926, when James B. Sumner showed that the enzymeurease was a protein. The first protein to be sequenced wasinsulin, by Frederick Sanger, who won the Nobel Prize for thisachievement in 1958. The first protein structures to be solvedincluded hemoglobin and myoglobin, by Max Perutz and Sir JohnCowdery Kendrew, respectively, in 1958. The three-dimensionalstructures of both proteins were first determined by x-raydiffraction analysis; Perutz and Kendrew shared the 1962 NobelPrize in Chemistry for these discoveries "Protein."

An alternator is an electromechanical device that converts mechanical energy to alternating currant electrical energy.
The alternator generates power to run the car and charge thebattery. An alternator in a vehicle generates Alternate Current (AC) insteadof Direct Current (DC) electricity to power the vehicle.
well its better to take the protein shakes, they're healthier. You should try a flavor that you like, there are many to choose from.
When protein expresses inside the cell it is intracellular.. if protein express and secretes into the medium is extracellular.
Protein powder is a means of supplementing one's diet, but it is not a replacement for food or even a meal.
Generally everything, but i suppose your question is more concerned with what has the greatest concentration of protein in. The general rule of thumb is that protein is biologically used to build the bodies of animals. So muscle, hair, claws, etc will all contain a high concentration of protein. As …far as your diet is concerned, look for all food that has a high animal content. Meat, fish and dairy products are all high in protein concentration (whey protein is a by product of cheese!). There is one general exception; Soya protein. But I dont rate it, it's biological value is really low and there are reported side effects that induce oestrogen production in men. (MORE)
Proteins don't make proteins directly, although they are an integral part of the process. Some proteins are enzymes -- biological catalysts -- which help in all aspects of protein synthesis. For example, RNA polymerase (an enzyme) transcribes DNA to RNA so it can be sequenced into a polypeptide. Rib…osomes (protein-rRNA complexes) also help build the strands. However, enzymes cannot do it all; nucleic acids are needed to code for the sequence of amino acids. (MORE)
It is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy on a car. It works by:the alternator creates an electric field by spinning a magnetic rotor with direct current inside stator windings. an ac voltage is developed and rectified dc. this voltage is compared to the battery voltage and… determines the current through the rotor. if the battery voltage is lower than the alternator voltage, more current through the rotor increases the magnetic field and creates a larger alternator voltage. if the battery voltage is higher, less current through the rotor decreases the alternator voltage.

First of all what do you need them for??? If its for growing muscle mass then i recommend you to get whey protein cocktails and drink them with water or milk.Drink them after your workout not before.It has all the details on the back of the container... You can buy those any gym or fitness bar or …even supermarket.If you want a natural way then eat salmon peanut butter without sugar or salt and eggs and other high protein food. Also a low carb and high protein diet is good but preferably with the workout. The key secret to muscle mass is eating i know this sounds strange and you would think that youd become fat but its the other way around just eat high protein food and low carb food and that's the key..

Proteins are necessary nutrients for the body. They play an important role in growth and development. Proteins are acquired from the food that we consume. Fish, eggs, milk, cereals, pulses etc, are a few protein giving foods.
Combination of amino acids made and connected in specific order by ribosomes. There are 20 amino acids, 8 necessary, and 12 unnecessary (body produces by itself).

This is an easy answer. The alternator is hooked (through wires blue and black) to the battery. So every time you start an engine the alternator kicks on and charges the battery. That's practically how it works. To add a bit to the above- an alternator produces an alternating electrical curre…nt (unlike a generator, which produces a direct current- DC vs AC) On modern cars, the alternator produces the current used to charge the battery, and operate electrical equipment on the car, such as lights, wipers, radio, etc. (MORE)
Protein we ingest is unfolded and broken down into its constituent amino acids. These amino acids are then used to make new protein that the body needs. This is why body builders require a high-protein diet.
The devices that develop electric power are a generator (for direct current), or an alternator (alternating current). In a car, an alternator is used, with a rectifier, because of size and weight considerations.
Proteins' main functions are: Growth, repair and maintenance of body structure and tissue. Maintain normal pH in body. Aid insulin production As a energy source in lack of fats and carbohydrates.

Revision for protein what is protein? Behind water, protein is the most abundant substance in your body. Protein is made up of amino acids. When you digest food that contains protein your body breaks the protein down in to these amino acids. When food is being digested the body selects the amin…o acids that are needed for a specific function and they are absorbed though the large intestine. There are 20 amino acids, each can be strung together in a different order in the body and this produces the different proteins. These proteins are needed to help develop and maintain your muscles and organs; in fact most of the bodies functions are reliant on there being enough protein. Protein is not stored in the body in the same way as fats or carbohydrates so it is important that you regularly consume enough protein. Without enough protein your body cannot function correctly. You may experience more illness, muscle atrophy and you will feel generally more run down. The correct amount of protein on the other hand assists in the building and maintenance of all body tissues and helps in the creation of enzymes and antibodies which are essential for all over body health. why does the body need protein? Protein is absorbed in to the body and broken down in to amino acids; this is essential for the correct Running of your body. However out of the 20 amino acids that the body uses, only 11 can be produced by the body itself, these are called 'non-essential'. The other 9 that must come from our food are called 'essential' and as the name suggests it is essential that we must get these amino acids through our diet. So, our bodies need protein from food or supplementation to function correctly. A complete protein is a source of protein that will contain all the essential amino acids the body needs, whereas an incomplete protein source will not. Examples of complete proteins are usually animal products such as meat. Incomplete proteins are usually found in plant sources such as seeds or nuts. Combining some of these incomplete protein sources will give you a meal that contains all the essential amino acids. what foods are high in protein? It is important to get enough protein through food before you start taking supplements, most food labels will show you the level of nutrients are contained in the food. To give you an idea of some food that you may regularly come across and it's protein content, please see the table below. All amounts given are approximate and will vary depending on the quality / cut of the food, but it should give you an idea as to which foods are high in protein. Chicken 100g - 27 grams of protein Turkey 100g - 25 grams of protein Beef 100g - 22 grams of protein Fish 100g - 21 grams of protein Lamb Chops 100g - 21 grams of protein Duck 100g - 20 grams of protein Cottage Cheese 100g - 14 grams of protein Milk 1 glass / 250ml - 8 grams of protein Egg medium sized - 8 grams of protein Tofu 100g - 8 grams of protein Should I eat all foods that are high in protein? Both fish and lamb chops have a similar amount. Some foods will have a higher fat percentage, in the case of lamb chops, about 28 grams per 100g serving. Fillets of white fish like cod or haddock have a lower fat percentage and may only contain around 1- 2 grams of fat. Remember though that fat and carbohydrates are also essential for your body so don't try to cut them out of your diet altogether. By all means increase your protein intake, but not at the expense of other nutrients. What are good vegetarian sources of protein? As a vegetarian or vegan you can still get enough protein though food, good sources of protein are nuts, seeds, cereals and pulses. Tofu is an excellent vegetarian substitute for meat. Eating a combination of these, including pulses will ensure you can get all the essential amino acids you need. There are many sites out there with recipe ideas to get you started. With minimal investigation you can find meal ideas that not only taste great, are really inexpensive too! what is the best protein? The effectiveness of protein is measured by it Biological Value (BV), this is how easily the body can absorb the protein and put it to use. As protein can be assumed to be the only source of nitrogen for the body, tests are performed which measure the amount of nitrogen in urine. The less nitrogen passed in the urine, the more has been absorbed into the body. As the body has absorbed more nitrogen from this source, it is more effective; and its Biological Value is higher. The main protein sources that you will encounter and their BV are: Whey - 104 Egg - 100 Milk - 91 Beef - 80 Soy - 74 There are arguments about how a protein source can have a Biological Value over 100, but BV can be measured in 2 ways. Egg protein is set as the benchmark and has a relative BV of 100 , its percentage BV however stands at 93.7% allowing whey protein to have a relative BV of over 100 how much protein do you need? The answer varies from study to study, however per day about 45-50 grams of protein for women aged over 18 and about 55-60 grams of protein for men aged over 18 is needed for our bodies to function correctly. For muscles to grow and tissue to repair your body needs enough protein; when taking up an activity such as a sport, or joining the gym the amount of protein your body requires will increase. Strength athletes and bodybuilders in particular need to increase their protein intake to get the most out of their training. There is nowhere in the body for us to store protein like we do for example with fat. This means we must regularly consume enough protein to keep our bodies healthy. Supplements are an excellent way to keep up your protein intake. In order to get the most out of your body you must put in enough fuel. Is too much protein bad for you? Although the body needs a certain amount of protein, too much can be harmful for a person's health. There is a significant risk of high cholesterol, due to the high amount of saturated fats in certain foods, which could in turn lead to heart disease and stroke. Too much protein also puts a strain on the liver and kidneys. Foods that contain protein have high levels of nitrogen, which are harmful to the body and must be eliminated. The role of the kidneys is to filter out waste products and therefore an excess of protein will force the kidneys to work harder to remove the nitrogen waste from the body. This stress could ultimately lead to kidney disorders or damage to the body's filtering capacities. Due to the inability of the body to store excess protein, any surplus protein that is consumed is then converted into glucose in the liver and either used up as energy or stored as fat. Some protein-rich foods are high in nucleic acids, which when broken down, are converted into uric acid. Consequently, too much uric acid in the blood can lead to gout, an extremely uncomfortable condition that causes a person's joints to become inflamed, tender and agonizingly painful to move. Finally, too much protein in the diet could also lead to osteoporosis (thinning of the bones), as an excess of protein promotes the loss of calcium in the bones through urine. Can too little protein affect our health? Just as too much protein is detrimental to our health, too little protein can also affect the body negatively. Many foods containing protein are also good sources of iron amongst other minerals and vitamins. A lack of iron can result in tiredness and fatigue, leaving the body weak and with little energy. Protein in the body is lost daily and therefore must be replenished daily through the diet. Too little protein can cause skin problems and generally give us an unhealthy and tired appearance. Protein is needed to repair and create new cells, tissues, hormones, enzymes and muscles and a lack of protein can prevent these processes from being carried out correctly. In children, who need a lot of protein to help them grow and develop, not enough protein can lead to a stunted growth and even poor mental development. (MORE)

Proteins build our cells, tissues and there by body. Muscle protein actin and myosin are responsible for muscle contraction. collagen is an important protein of connective tissue such ligaments, tendons, bones and teeth.
There are many advantages to alternative (vegetarian and vegan) proten sources in food. * Variety - Not eating meat continually allows for there to be some diversity and variety in flavors and food in a diet. * Digestion - Some people have trouble digesting certain foods. A variety can help giv…e the stomach a break. This is most common for those who look for protein to come from milk. Those who cannot easily digest milk, are lactose intolerant, or have a milk allergy can find similar proteins in hard cheeses (which have a very low dairy / lactose content) or other milks, such as soy, rice, and almond milk. * Environment - Protein can come from natural non-meat foods, such as grains, beans, nuts, and certain vegetables. These are more environmentally friendly and use up less energy to grow than manufacturing animal meat does. * Molecular differences - Proteins come in different molecular sizes and shapes, and a variety of different types of proetins is good for a balanced and healthy diet.
