    i acually think its B because in the book it said that prions are made because they were foled incorrecctly so then the shape would be a big matter in this question... i think...

    In the first one about the protein... the folding of a protein is determined by the intermolenuclear force among molecules... hydrogen bonds, ion bonds, hydrofobic bonds, ect. The cause of this can be many, it can be tempeture, pH, amino acid change from the originial protein and so on. So if we have to be obvious... The protein is folded yes, but what causing it can be the change in the chemical formula (change in amino acids)

    oh okay i was thinking like the chemical would make the most sense but thn i saw the shape one so i figured it was just that but thanks that makes sense :)

    But I would say the protein is misfolded. :)

    wait so shape or chemical because tech the shape would only be wrong if the chemical formula is differet right?

    Well... the chemical structure of a protein determines its 3d structure ... in other words, the primary structure dominates over the other stuctures for a protein.
