Write a short note on the ternary structure of proteins.

TERNARY STRUCTURE OF PROTEINS: This describes the overall three-dimensional arrangement of all atoms in a protein. While “secondary structure” refers to the spatial arrangement of amino acid residues in the primary structure, the tertiary structure includes longer-range aspects of the amino acid sequence. So, the interactions between amino acids that are far apart in the polypeptide sequence and that reside in different types of secondary structure and the resultant folded structure of the polypeptide chain in the protein are revealed in the ternary structure.
