Glutamine synthetase enzyme. Molecular model showing the secondary structure of the enzyme glutamine synthetase. This is a ligase enzyme, an enzyme that forms chemical bonds between molecules. The different colours show the different subunits that comprise the protein. Proteins form the majority of the structural and functional units in all organisms. Study of the structure and function of proteins (proteomics) provides greater insight into how organisms work.
