Beta Pleated Sheet Backbone
This molecular model shows the backbone the beta pleated sheet using 20 amino acid cores.
This alpha helix or beta pleated sheet model consists of 20 amino acid cores to build the backbones of either structure. The alpha helix fits into the major groove of the 12 layer DNA model. The long bonds have white inserts to designate them as hydrogen bonds. The inlaid image shows the beta pleated sheet which uses the same components as the alpha helix. If you wish to modify the side chains represented by the green atoms you use either with the 20 Amino Acid Model Kit or the Orbit Biochemistry Model Set.
