Explain the four forces (i.e., bonds or interactions) that stabilize a protein’s structure at the tertiary level.
F. Explain how bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) occurs at a molecular level by doing the following:
1. Explain the role of prions in BSE, including each of the following:
- how prions are formed
- the connection between misfolding and aggregation
- how prions lead to the disease
2. Explain one possible role of a chaperone protein in BSE, including each of the following:
- how chaperones normally act in the cell
- how a chaperone protein can contribute to BSE
3. Recommend two ways that a country without regulations in place can decrease the risk of transmitting the prion involved in BSE (e.g., feeding practices, animal disposal).
G. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.
Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) Biochemistry Name Institution Date Explain the four forces (i.e., bonds or interactions) that stabilize a protein’s structure at the tertiary level. Tertiary structures are the chains that are folded or twisted into domains, which are stable arrangements (Ahern & Rajagopal, 2012). The structures are held together by ionic, hydrogen and covalent bonds. The attractive interactions shape the tertiary structures of proteins, and this includes ionic bonding, hydrogen bonding, disulfide linkages, and
