. In general terms, what does the secondary structure of a protein represent?

Interpretation Introduction


Interpret the secondary structure of protein.

Concept Introduction:

Protein is a long chain of polypeptide in which numbers of amino acids are linked to each other to produce a structure known as protein.

Each amino acid consists of carboxyl end and amino group which are joined through peptide linkage to produce dipeptide, tripeptide and polypeptide according to number of amino acids linked to each other.


Primary structure of protein consists of long chain of amino acid linked to each other through peptide bond. Primary structure of protein organized and condenses to produce repeating pattern to produce secondary structure of protein, a three dimensional form formed by the formation of hydrogen bonding between the hydrogen of amino group and oxygen of carbonyl group.

Secondary structure of protein consists of alpha helix and beta pleated structure...
