Answer on Biochemistry Question for konika choudhury
why type 2 beta turn is more stable than type 1?
Of the several types of βturns, the two (type I andtype II) are the most common. Type I turns occur more than twice as frequently as type II. All types of βturns are stable. All involve a four aminoacid sequence in which the carbonyl oxygen of AA-1 is H-bonded to the amino-H of AA-4 (rather than AA-5 as is found in the alpha helix). Type I and type IIturns differ in the bond linking residue 2 and residue 3. The two types differ in a 180 degree rotation around the bond linking residues 2 and 3. Although various amino acids can make up theturn, frequently AA-2 is a proline since it does introduce a sharp bend in the polypeptide chain. Type II βturns always have Gly as the third residue to avoid steric interactions between its R group and thecarbonyl oxygen residue of residue 2.
I'm extremely satisfied with the assignment that was completed. The satisfaction led me to bring more assignments. For a long time I've been in need of programming experts but it's been so hard to find. Other sites were fake. I'm glad to have found your site by chance. Thank you very much
