Quaternary Structure of proteins

The quaternary structure is the 4th level of protein structure. It is also the most complex level. In the quaternary level several tertiary level groupings will chemically combine and twist around each other. The quaternary structure of proteins forms protein molecules like antibodies that are used in the immune system to fight infections and diseases.
