What Are Proteins?
Proteins are biological macromolecules made up from peptide bonds of amino acids. Short amino acid chains are called peptides. Starting only from a length of about 100 of them they are called proteins. Most proteins are chains of 100 to 300 amino acids. The largest currently known protein even consists of more than 30,000 amino acids chained peptidally.
