      Protein chemistry is a huge area which covers things such as:

      – protein structure (primary, secondary and tertiary)
      – amino acid modification
      – how differing amino acid combinations result in alter catalytic capabilities.
      – protein modification by attachment of prosthetic groups

      and even these 4 general topics can be broken down into further subgroups.
      So is there is anything in particular yo are looking to know about then write a comment and I will get back to you.
