How many combinations of proteins can be made?
In this manner, how many proteins are possible?
Proteins coded in human genome are expected to number about 3.5 × 104. If any combinations of 20 amino acids are equally possible, there are 1.3 × 10130 ( = 20100) possible amino acid sequences in proteins being composed of 100 amino acids.
how do you find all possible combinations? Combinations are a way to calculate the total outcomes of an event where order of the outcomes does not matter. To calculate combinations, we will use the formula nCr = n! / r! * (n - r)!, where n represents the total number of items, and r represents the number of items being chosen at a time.
People also ask, how do you combine foods to make a complete protein?
- Nuts or seeds with whole grains (peanut butter on whole wheat toast)
- Whole grains with beans (beans and rice; hummus and pita bread; bean-based chili and crackers; refried beans and tortillas)
- Beans with nuts or seeds (salad with chickpeas and sunflower seeds)
How many different combinations are there for a protein thats three amino acids long?
Since each of the 20 amino acids is chemically distinct and each can, in principle, occur at any position in a protein chain, there are 20 × 20 × 20 × 20 = 160,000 different possible polypeptide chains four amino acids long, or 20n different possible polypeptide chains n amino acids long.
