Teaser Tuesdays

I’m spending a lot of time with my text books at the moment, so I haven’t got on to a new reading book and am still reading Guns, Germs & Steel. So this teaser is from my text book.

This folding pattern is known as higher-order structure, and it means that every single molecule of the enzyme will have precisely the same convoluted three-dimensional structure.  The enzyme is held in this shape by hydrogen-bonding, and a number of other intramolecular interactions.

Hope that doesn’t contain too much enzyme-catalysis-related spoiler info for you

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 😉
