What type of bonding occurs in β-plated structure of proteins?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 26th May, 2014, 01:17: PM
In β-structure, all peptide chains are stretched out to nearly maximum extension and then laid side by side which are held together by intermolecular hydrogen bonds between and -NH group. The structure resembles the pleated folds of drapery and therefore is known as β-pleated sheet.
