lead is too long[edit]

Everything in this article can be simplified and to reduce its word count. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FreeHKK (talkcontribs) 15:22, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Should list protein size, in molecular weight as well as amino acids[edit]

Biology is aided by numeracy, yet many protein pages contain no information on protein size. What would it take to include the molecular weight (in daltons) and number of amino acids in the summary boxes for individual proteins? Or a range, for protein families? Newbie editor here, so apologies if this isn't the right venue for such an question. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.6.212.166 (talk) 03:40, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 6 April 2019[edit]

When looking up "protein" on google, the little wikipedia section describes it as a nutrient. It is not. It is only a collection of nutrients in a colloquial sense. A protein is a biological molecule composed of amino acids to perform a certain function. Enzymes are not nutrients, but they are proteins. I suggest that it says "Protein [↵] Biological molecule" RuskiyJohn (talk) 20:47, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

 Not done: The Google excerpt is not about this article, it's about Protein (nutrient) and points to that. – Þjarkur (talk) 22:43, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
And yet it's still semi-protected. Does it need to be at this point? tsilb (talk) 03:10, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
