- ‘I typed it out as I was thinking about how some major classes of biomolecules - protein, carbohydrate, lipid, and nucleic acid - are perceived.’
- ‘And for that matter, life itself is an emergent property, arising from proteins, DNA, and other biomolecules.’
- ‘A knowledge of the proteins and other biomolecules that genes control is the other half.’
- ‘In its extreme forms, this approach takes organic synthesis as the means rather than a prerequisite, and views complex biomolecules like DNA and proteins as symptoms of life rather than its cause.’
- ‘Typically, the biomolecule or assembly of biomolecules is considered as a system of interacting units arranged on the sites of a lattice.’
- ‘The compound is readily absorbed by the body and is well-known for its harmful effects on proteins, DNA, and other biomolecules.’
- ‘Electrostatic forces play a crucial role in the conformation and function of biomolecules, especially in the protein complexes that carry out charge transfer functions.’
- ‘Xrays, thanks to their short wavelengths, can probe the shapes of proteins and biomolecules.’
- ‘The volume resolution over this timescale is sufficient to identify relatively modest conformational changes in a peptide/protein or other biomolecule.’
