Some of these are the ability to support and move the skeleton, the transport and storage of substances in tissues and blood, the catalysis of reactions, gene expression and cell growth.
Proteins and amino acids are parts of substances such as hormones, growth factors, enzymes, antibodies, etc.
It is estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of different proteins in the human body.
