Please note that the colour in the images below is purely artefactual, and
merely serves to help in visualisation, but has no other significance. This
form of representation does not actually show where the disulphide bonds are.
To see this important feature, display the coordinate files served here with
RasMol, and select
Display: Wireframe, Sticks, Spacefill, or Ball & Stick, and Colour:CPK to
see the yellow of the sulphur in the (usually buried) cysteines.
Small Disulphide-rich Folds
Here we see examples of the main families of small disulphide-rich domains of
known structure. There are also `Small' domains without disulphides, which
could have been grouped here, but instead are grouped under all-alpha or all-beta
as appropriate (eg glucagon).
