To describe the supersecondary structure (SSS) of beta sandwich-like proteins (SPs), we introduce a structural unit called the "strandon." A strandon is defined as a set of sequentially consecutive strands connected by hydrogen bonds in 3D structures. Representing beta-proteins as the assembly of strandons exposes the underlying similarities in their SSS… CONTINUE READING
