Structure of proteins: packing of alpha-helices and pleated sheets.
Simple models are presented that describe the rules for almost all the packing that occurs between and among alpha-helices and pleated sheets. These packing rules, together with the primary and secondary structures, are the major determinants of the three-dimensional structure of proteins.
