In the immediately preceding papers we have described several hydrogen-bonded planar-amide configurations of polypeptide chains, and have discussed the evidence bearing on the question of their presence in fibrous proteins. It seems worth while to consider the possibility that these configurations - the pleated sheet, the 3.7-residue α helix, the 5.1-residue γ helix, and the three-chain collagen helix-are represented in molecules of the globular proteins.
