    you're being vague. there are many more than 4 proteins...

    simple proteins (only amino acids), scleroproteins (structural), mucoproteins (bound to carbs), albumin/globulins (globular, enzymes), lipoproteins (bound to lipids) just to name a few.

    Conjugated proteins(protein + nonprotein), nucleoproteins(protein wrapping the nucleic acid ex: histamine), metalloproteins(protein with metal ion), and chromoproteins(protein with pigment molecule).
    That makes the 9 protein types.
    As to protein structure

    primary-AA(amino acid) sequence
    secondary-folding
    tertiary-more folding on top of the secondary
    quaternary-two or more amino acid sequences interacting ex: hemoglobin

    You could also be referring to the 4 organic molecule types
    Protein
    Carbohydrates
    Lipids and fats
    Nucleic Acids(DNA, and RNA)
