Research and report on one of the following proteins: human growth hormone, estrogen, herceptin (a cancer-fighting protein), or beta-amyloid (a protein involved in Alzheimer’s disease).
Proteins can serve as channels through which materials can pass in and out of the cell. The glycocalyx. Sugar chains that attach to communication or recognition proteins, serving as their binding sites. The glycocalyx can also lubricate cells and act as an adhesion layer for them. CHAPTER 2 Cell Structure and Function 43 Contents Previous Section Membrane Glycoprotein Chains Play a Key Role in the Fight Against Disease Dr. Harry Jennings of the National Research Council has contributed to a medical breakthrough—the production of the first fully synthetic Next Section (human-made) vaccine.
