Meaning of HOMOPOLYMER

 
Biology Dictionary
 
 Definition: A type of polymer (large molecule which consists of a chain of similar smaller molecules called monomers) where all of the monomers are the same thing. For example, a polypeptide which consists entirely of the amino acid lysine linked end to end, instead of many different amino acids linked end to end, would be a homopolymer.
