What type of bonding occurs in β-plated structure of proteins?

Expert Answer:

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.
