Explore some very general functions of proteins. Elucidating protein function is arguably one of the most interesting and most studied areas of protein biology.

1) The first part of this assignment is to choose three of the six protein functions discussed Lesk Ch. 2 (p72-80) and use the literature to find a representative protein within this class. What structural features of this protein allow it to function in this capacity?

2) In the second section I would like you to look more closely at the way proteins can function as enzymes.

a. How does a protein become "phosphorylated"? What effect can this post-translational modification (PTM) have on a protein?

b. What is "glycosylation" and what is one potential way that it can impact the function of a protein?
