- Slide 1
- Globular Proteins Proteins with a compact folded structure (with an interior and exterior), generally containing different types of secondary structure elements as well as irregular regions. Note: the vast majority of proteins are globular.

- Some Globular Protein Structures Myoglobin Hemoglobin (complex of 4 polypeptide chains or subunits) Triose phosphate isomerase (complex of 2 subunits)20S Proteasome (complex of 28 subunits)

- Slide 6
- Additional Elements of Structure: Turns turns turn R2 often Pro Most common type of turn R3 never Pro trans-Pro (above) or cis-Pro (in Type VI turns) often found in turns, but rarely in helices and sheets.

- Slide 8
- Turns with cis-Proline: Type VI Type VIa Type VIb
- Slide 9
- cis-trans Isomerization of Proline Residues Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerases accelerate the isomerization.
- Slide 10
- Additional Elements of Structure: Loops Irregularly structured elements More disordered and flexible than turns Connects secondary structure elements Variable in length and shape Frequently form binding sites and enzyme active sites The N- and C-terminal arms of proteins are also generally more disordered and irregularly structured.
