Problem

What kinds of interactions lead to the secondary and tertiary structures of proteins? 


What types of interactions must be disrupted to fully denature a protein, and how can this be done?

Solution

The interaction between the hydrogen bonds between carbonyl group and hydrogen of amide group lead to the structure of the secondary protein while the interaction between hydrogen bonds, ionic bonds, hydrophobic interactions and covalent bonds lead to the structure of the tertiary protein.
