Proteins are biological macromolecules produced by all living cells. They are formed by a succession of simple components, the amino acids. Depending on the size of amino acid chains, they are referred to peptides (oligo- or polypeptides) or proteins. This family of molecules is produced by the expression of genes located into DNA.
Peptides and proteins play diverse roles in living organisms through their structure. They carry transport, defence, regulation, structural or signalisation functions but also handle enzymatic roles (transformation of substrates into specific products).
The Coraliotech technology also provides high purified proteins (> 90% of purity), distinguishing these from the so-called natural extracts.
