Hence the various proteins only differ from each other in the proportion and order in which these amino acids make up the protein chains. (2) These macromolecules, the proteins, are mutually associated b y means o f secondary valences, and lead to a supramolecular organization, forming the protoplasm: this association depends o n steric laws common to all proteins, which is shown by the very significant fact that all asymetic C of all a-amino acids of all proteins possess the same steric configuration.

For this reason the association had to be very flexible, simple and especially selected by its aptitude to adapt itself to new conditions, rather than by its capacity to exploit in a particular way the traditional trophism, characteristic of the stage. e. the transformation of the association into a being on a higher level than that of the being in the association).
