A decade before the structures of entire proteins were first revealed by x-ray crystallography, Linus Pauling and Robert Corey of the California Institute of Technology (Fig. 1) deduced the two main structural features of proteins: the -helix and -sheet, now known to form the backbones of tens of thousands of proteins. Their deductions, triumphs in building models of large molecules based on features of smaller molecules, were published in a series of eight articles, communicated to PNAS in… CONTINUE READING
