It Twists And Turns.....

a: Tertiary structure ~
b: plot to a novel, book

What: "Tertiary structure is like the plot. It's how the amino acids interact with other amino acids in other parts of the protein chain. There are twists and turns. Things fold back on each other. Lines intersect. Some amino acids can even form chemical bonds with each other, joining parts of the protein chain together, connecting them at particular points along the line. The tertiary structure gives the protein/book its shape. Foreshadowing, flashback, conflict, surprise, epiphany. These are all tertiary structural elements of the story, and they ultimately make the protein perform its function. They make the story work."
