The structure of the alpha-keratin microfibril.


Quantitative measurements of the intensity of the meridional reflections in the X-ray-diffraction pattern of alpha-keratin are shown to be consistent with a microfibril structure in which a surface lattice with an axially projected period around 200 A is subject to a periodic interruption with an axially projected period of 470 A. Taken in conjunction with… (More)
