Homework Help: Secondary structure of protein.

  1. Feb 16, 2008 #1
    [SOLVED] Secondary structure of protein.

    1. What determines the secondary structure of a protein?

    2. I do not fully understand this question, does it mean the two general types of secondary structure a-helices and b-pleated sheets. Or does it mean by how we determine them DSSP code. And there should be two main ones accoridng to my teacher.

    Thank you for donating your time!
