How many levels are there to protein folding and what are the major interactions of each step?
1) Primary structure, this is the boding of amino acids by the peptide bond. 2) Secondary structure, formation of alpha-helices, and beta-pleated sheets (parallel and anti-parallel), which are stabilized by intramolecular hydrogen bonds. 3) Tertiary Structure, formed and stabilized by the intramolecular hydrophobic and hydrophilic interactions of the variable side chains of the individual amino acids. 4) Quaternary structure, assembly, or co-assembly of "units" which are separate amino acid chains.
In eukaryotic cells, where is the DNA stored?
The Nucleus. Eukarya comes from the Greek word for "nut" or "kernel". So the genetic information (DNA) for the cell is enclosed in the nucleus where it is protected and can not leave.
