Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs.

Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller units called amino acids, which are attached to one another in long chains. There are 20 different types of amino acids that can be combined to make a protein. The sequence of amino acids determines each protein’s unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function.

It is also estimated that human body has the ability to generate 2 million different types of proteins, coded by only 20,000-25,000 of our genes. The sum of proteins in biological organisms exceeds 10 million, despite this, the research on proteins is yet going on.
