Alternate Version: Biomolecules: The Proteins (Video)
Biomolecules - The Proteins
In this animated object, learners read an introduction to protein structure and function.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the action of insulin and other antidiabetic medications. In a drag-and-drop exercise, learners match oral agents with the action they perform. In a separate activity, learners answer questions about the onset of action for different types of insulin.

what are proteins constructed from?
Proteins are constructed from chains of amino acids.
Proteins are made up of smaller building blocks called amino acids, joined together in chains. There are 20 different amino acids. Some proteins are just a few amino acids long, while others are made up of several thousands. These chains of amino acids fold up in complex ways, giving each protein a unique 3D shape.
what do protein do?
They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body's tissues and organs. Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller units called amino acids, which are attached to one another in long chains.
What is rna
ribonucleic acid, a nucleic acid present in all living cells. Its principal role is to act as a messenger carrying instructions from DNA for controlling the synthesis of proteins, although in some viruses RNA rather than DNA carries the genetic information.
