    Hello friends,

    What is the difference between an amino acid and a protein?
    How does this difference in structure affect biological function?

    Proteins are polymers of amino acids.
    Your body needs 9 essential amino acids from the diet while the other amino acids (the nonessential amino acids) usually can be made by the body. Essential amino acid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
