In the example above there are four amino acids in this protein.
The sequence of the amino acids is :
N-serine, valine, tyrosine, cysteine-C.
In the example above, the protein is composed of two polypeptide chains.
The chains are connected by a disulfide bond between the two polypeptide chains.
The primary structure can be represented as in the figure
