  2. The polypeptide chain is spirally coiled, generally in a clock-wise or right handed fashion.
  3. Glycine and proline are unable to form hydrogen bonds.
  4. They are called helix breakers. a -helix is the final structure in certain fibrous proteins, e.g., keratin (hair, nail, horn), epidermis (skin).
  5. Keratin is known as sclero protein.
  6. Keratin cannot be digested.
