    Proteins are made up of strings of amino acids held together by sugar molecules.

    I don't know what test was used in this particular instance - so I do not know if it was a valid one.

    All I do know is there are many, many reliable tests for amino acids in urine.

    If amino acids are present, that indicates proteins.

    i know what s a protein. But maybe testing for proteins in urine is different than testing for various aminos, and the meaning of a test depend on what is intended to diagnose

    Proteins ARE made of strings of amino acids - however they are NOT joined by sugar molecules. They are joined by peptide bonds which involve the loss of a water molecule between the adjacent amino acids.

    DNA on the other hand is made up of nucleotides, part of which is a sugar molecule - and these sugar molecules form the backbone of the DNA structure alone with phosphate groups.

    (Sorry Biology teacher before ME and can't quite prevent myself from correcting!)

    Thanks, Keela Too

    I was being very simplistic :redface: - english is not Trollo's first language.
    I also tend to forget about "gross" structures as proteins - most of my study was more at DNA and RNA level - and a long time ago.

    Science can get very up it's own little cul-de-sac.....

    LOL - no worries! Hard for an ole teacher to leave an error uncorrected! LOL

    Perhaps of course I need to learn a little more of "Let it go!" and apply it to all areas of my life!

    I'd probably have done exactly the same - if I'd been wearing my brain.:)

    Are u a biology teacher Keela? How do take all this Yasko stuff from your point of view? Don't you think Peggy is making confusion with another kind of tests?

    Sorry too many long posts here & I didn't follow the thread properly. Skipped to top of page 3, and saw a short sentence that pushed all my buttons as a biology teacher. Sorry not to delve deeper, but just now health is rubbish.
