AAMC FL 2-BIO/BIOCHEM Section Questions/Doubts

17. Figure 1 shows that reducing agents separate subunits of Protein X. I get that! This indicates that subunits of Protein X are linked together by disulfide bonds which implicate the thiol groups of cysteine residues. Why is that? I don't understand.
