What are proteins? How can the protein diversity of living beings be explained?

Proteins are molecules made of sequences of amino acids bound by a peptide bond.

The genetic code codifies twenty dissimilar amino acids that can compose proteins. So there are many combinations of amino acid which can form polypeptide chains and for this reason protein molecules can be vastly diverse.
