The major products of genes are proteins, which are the building blocks not only of the physical structure of living organisms but also of their biochemical networks. A protein's function is due to its native conformation including surface structure, binding sites and active sites plus the biochemical and biophysical properties of its constituent amino acids. A protein's structure is determined by the sequence of its amino acids, which are derived by transcription and translation from DNA (genomic coding sequences), and which fold into the final conformation. </ABSTRACT><NOTES>Isabel</NOTES></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
