Are Biopolymers Important?

Living organisms are composed of cells, and most cell structures are formed or synthesized and most other cell functions are performed by the mechanomers and biopolymers called proteins.

Each such function is performed by its own particular and specific protein, or set thereof, and usually many molecules of each.

And a body cell typically synthesizes and uses tens of thousands of different proteins.
