Proteins have diverse biological functions ranging from DNA replication, transporting O2 around an organism to catalyzing various organic reactions [Creighton 1993; Whitford 2005].
The types of functional properties of proteins are endless and the number of types keeps increasing as new protein functions are characterized constantly. Proteins have evolved through millions of years of selection and perform specific functions. The specificity of their function is due to their unique three-dimensional structures. The three-dimensional structure arises because particular sequences in the amino acid chain assemble or fold to compact
domains starting from a linear chain, [Branden and Tooze 1991]. The folded domains can either provide a binding or catalytic site for a variety of functions or serve as modules for building up larger assemblies like virus particles or muscle fibers. The key elements and
motifs of the three-dimensional protein structure are described in greater detail.
