Secondary Structural Elements

Right-Handed Alpha Helix

http://www.cem.msu.edu/~parrill/movies/right.mov

If you orient your right thumb along the long axis of a right-handed alpha helix, your fingers should wrap around your thumb in the same manner as the helix does from the base of your thumb to your fingernail.  Try to locate the intermolecular attractions which stabilize this structure.

Anti-Parallel Beta Sheet

 http://www.cem.msu.edu/~parrill/movies/sheet.mov

A beta-sheet consists of chains going in either the opposite direction (anti-parallel) or the same direction (parallel) which form hydrogen bonds between the chains.

 

Conversion of Beta Sheet from anti-parallel to parallel

http://www.cem.msu.edu/~parrill/movies/parallel.mov

This movie converts a small segment of the anti-parallel beta sheet from the previous movie into a parallel beta sheet. Try to see if you can identify a difference in the intermolecular attractions which might make the anti-parallel beta sheet more common in biological systems.
