Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
The overall three-dimensional structure resulting from folding and covalent cross-linking of a protein or polynucleotide molecule.
- ‘Many proteins contain 2 or more different polypeptide chains that are held in association by the same non-covalent forces that stabilize the tertiary structures of proteins.’
- ‘Recently, Tsai et al. have described the folding complexity of a protein in terms of the arrangement of the building blocks in the protein tertiary structure.’
- ‘It has been noted that the tight backbone-to-backbone packing is important for the stabilization of the tertiary structure of membrane proteins.’
- ‘Generally, primary structural similarity correlates well with the tertiary structure, and if proteins are truly homologous, then they are likely to have very similar three-dimensional structures.’
- ‘The two enzymes have high sequence identity and their tertiary structures are very similar.’
