. Describe the secondary protein structure known as the a-helix. What types of proteins have this secondary structure?

Interpretation Introduction


Interpret the alpha helix of secondary structure of protein and type of protein in secondary structure.

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.


In primary structure, some region of protein organized to repeating pattern to produce secondary structure of protein. Secondary structure of protein consists of alpha helix and beta pleated structure.

The alpha helix structure is the condensed spir...
