- The Work Of Proteins In Our Bodies
The Work Of Proteins In Our Bodies
Our bodies are the most amazing creation we have available to ourselves, it is indeed the most precious gift that life and creation itself could have give us.
The body though is a very complex place, we have to keep on getting more and more informed about this great creation known as the human body in order for us to understand exactly what it is we have available to us.
One of the things that we have to be aware about our bodies is our proteins; these are large molecules that are complex as well and play an important role in keeping the health of our bodies normal.
The body's tissues and organs require proteins for their structures, functions and regulations; the cell also employs proteins to do most of their work in the body.
The tissues in our bodies such as the muscles, the organs, the immune system are also built, maintained and when necessary replaced by proteins, because most the tissue in our bodies are made up off proteins for the most part.
Virtually all of the functions of our bodies, as well as maintaining our bodies in a good healthy state are the responsibility of proteins, this molecule is very important to the cells; because they are involved in ever cell function.
Your body doesn't simply have proteins laying around, each protein that is made by our body, has a specific function; some of them may be involved in the structural support of our body, other proteins may be involved in the defense against germs, and yet others are used to build cardiac muscles, which would be needed for the proper functionality of your heart.
Proteins are able to have specific functions because of the way they synthesized, their structure consist of amino acid which give the newly formed protein a three-dimensional shape, which will then determine its function.
Thousands of smaller unit called amino acids are attached to one another in long chains to form the protein; there are only twenty types of amino acids, which are combined in different ways to give birth to a molecule that is very important to our bodies.
The three-dimensional structure and the function of a protein is also determine by the way the amino acids are aligned against each other.
A process called translation occurs in order for the body to produce proteins, which are manufacture by our body utilizing the dietary protein you consume.
Proteins are used in many vital processes and thus needs to be consistently replaced, if not you will deplete; in order to replace your protein you can accomplish this by regularly consuming foods that contain protein and taking vitamins and supplements that contain protein.
We must have enough proteins in our bodies, because the amount of protein we have, will determine the health and function of cells, because every cellular tasks, which include cell shape and inner organization as well as product manufacture requires proteins for those tasks to be completed.
Children need more proteins in their bodies than do adults because they are growing and developing new body parts, which need the essential functions of a proteins for them to develop in the right way.
So you see we need proteins, and if we don't have them, we will surely be depleted, and our bodies won't be able to fight off infections an illness, because proteins also play an important role in the synthesis of antibodies.
It is recommended by nutritionists that we take 10-35% of protein for every serving of meal we eat everyday.
But be careful you don't have too much protein in your system, because it could damage your kidneys and liver, but you need it for the growth of your body, help you lose weight and increase your metabolism.
Important processes that are essentially necessary for your body to maintain a good health, are all possible because of the presence of protein in our bodies.
So take in your protein but do it in moderation, also try to get your proteins from non dairy products or meat although this are the recommendations of a doctor, but trust me, you don't want to drink that milk for the rest of your life, because it is killing you, will talk about that on a different article.
Do take your protein but from plant based food, source like soy and brown rice are a good place to get your daily protein intake that you need, to keep a healthy lifestyle.
Replacement of animal-based proteins with cheaper and healthier plant sources will contribute to the strong growth of new protein supplement introductions.
Besides if you are trying to live, I don't think you believe that drinking milk for the rest of your life is smart either, because we seem to be the only mammals that drink milk even after we are out of the milk stage of our live, we are still drinking milk, and then we don't drink milk from another human being, no we rather milk a cow that knows nothing about our body functionality, I see why we are dying of so many diseases, we are consuming the wrong foods.
Then we wonder why did God take that loved one away from us.
I don't think he is doing all the killing anymore, I think we are.
Large, complex molecules which play many critical roles in the body, are known as proteins.
Proteins are required for the structure, they do most of the work in cells and, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs.
Amino acids, which are attached to one another in long chains, are hundreds or thousands of smaller units and make up Proteins.
Protein are made out of 20 different types of amino acids, which can be combined to make.
Each protein’s unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function is determined, by the sequence of amino acids.
The journey from gene to protein is complex and tightly controlled within each cell.
Most genes contain the information needed to make functional molecules called proteins.
(A few genes produce other molecules that help the cell assemble proteins).
. It consists of two major steps: transcription and translation.
Together, transcription and translation are known as gene expression.

Hi every one, I obtained a bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics back in 2006, from Claflin University, after I received my bachelor's degree, I gained full time employment as a software engineer at a Video Relay Service company, maintaining databases and developing software for a new developed device called the VPAD.
I worked at that company for two years, then I became a web developer, and worked for a magazine for three years. After that job, I worked as a Drupal web developer, as a subcontractor for the NIH, for a year and then left the job to go back to school.
