Student compares two different proteins. the student notices that the primary structures differ in both the number of amino acids and the sequence of amino acids. based on this information, what can the student infer?
Each protein has its unique sequence and number of amino acids. This determines their 3-D structure as well. The properties of the protein are also attributed to the unique sequence and number of amino acids present in it. Different sequence and number denote that the two proteins are different, and have different structure and properties.
