(59) This strategy revealed that helices A and G were already mostly folded after 200 ys in the I1 intermediate.
This method revealed that helices A and G are tightly packed compared to helix H in the I1 intermediate of apoMb; helix B does not fold tightly at this stage.
Yet another popular theory states that 3/10 helices are usually situated before or after alpha helices [1, 4, 9].
It has been shown that random coil regions can be considered to function as "connecting bridges" between major elements of secondary structure (alpha helices and beta strands) .
, as chiral elements, are characterized by dielectric, magnetic, and chiral polarizabilities in the field of monochromatic electromagnetic waves.
The four helices
are wound on thin cylindrical polyvinylchloride (PVC) dielectric tubing.
The geometric parameters of these helices
are set as follows: pitch height, H = 20 mm and radius of wire, R = 0.5 mm.
Figures 5 and 6 show the relative amplitude and phase of the current distribution along the winding of open-ended and top-loaded helices
at 1660.5 MHz.
A comparison showed that the optimally packed computer-generated helices
closely matched the specific twists and diameters of helices
The new synthetic structures offer a means for studying how natural and lab-made double helices
form and bind to other molecules, such as DNA.

and beta-pleated sheets.
Warshaw says the next step is to use fluorescent antibodies to actin and myosin to see whether the protein "contractile units' inside the cell are arranged in twisting helices
