To best appreciate the material in this chapter, you should have your WWW browser configured to invoke RasMol as the helper application for chemical MIME type files.

This material includes some RasMol scripts, which may be copied directly into the RasMol command line from your browser window; alternatively download the script files and use the RasMol script command to execute them.

In Section 9, we examined the interactions between elements of secondary structure, and then reviewed supersecondary structure.

We now progress to domains and their folds. A single protein may consist of several or many domains, but many proteins are single-domain.

Proteins with many (often repeated) domains are termed mosaic proteins.

Multi-domain proteins can have domains of very different types. Three major classes are globular (water-soluble), membrane-bound ('lipid soluble') and fibrous. On this basis, whole proteins can also be classified into different types.

Please e-mail any questions or comments on the topics of the current course material to the pps96-proteins list.
