Conjugated proteins, Biology


Besides being made of polypeptides, the conjugated proteins posses additional groups, metals or ions.

Consists of protein and non-protein parts.

Nucleoprotein --             Protein + Nucleic acids(DNA/RNA).

                                     Ribosomes - RNA + Protein

                                     Chromosomes - DNA + Protein

Chromoprotein --           Colourful protein consists of Protein + Pigment, eg. Haemoglobin,Chlorophyll

Phosphoprotein --             Consists of Protein + Phosphate group, eg. Casein protein (milk),

                                     Phosvitin (Egg yolk), Ovovitellin (Egg yolk)

Metaloprotein --             Consists of Protein + Metal
