QUESTION 16 Proline residues typically terminate secondary structures like a-helices

Question : QUESTION 16 Proline residues typically terminate secondary structures like a-helices : 345268

QUESTION 16 Proline residues typically terminate secondary structures like a-helices because they create a stable kink in the polypeptide backbone as a result of O their unique configuration around the amide nitrogen-it binds the tip of the side chain to form a 5 member ring O their unique configuration around the alpha carbon- they are the only achiral amino acids. O their tendency to form disulfide bridges o their unique configuration around the carbonyl carbon-it is always protonated. their very bulky and very hydrophobic aromatic ring forces them to be in the cis-conformation
