  • Functions and examples of proteins in living organisms
    • Enzymes (Globular Protein)
      • Biological Catalyst
      • E.G. Maltose, Lipase and DNA helicase
    • Haemoglobin (Globular Protein)
      • Binds to and transports oxygen in red blood cells
      • Made of four protein chains joined toghether
    • Hormones (Globular Protein)
