Predicting  α  helix and  β  strands? A, E, and L =  α  helix (not V, T, I; S, D,  and N) V, I, and T =  β  strand P disrupts both   α  helix and  β  strand G fits in both  α  helix and  β  strand -VDLLKN-

f α  = 2.2X α  - 0.7 Count  α  promoters, N α  = Sum of  HELM AND  QRK and divide by total no. of residues (N T ), to obtain  X α  = N α /N No alpha-helix forms when there is less than 33%  alpha-promoters and very stable helix forms when  there are >75% alpha promoters.  For 50% alpha- promoters there is 40% probability of alph helix. f   α  = 2.2(.33) – 0.7 = 0 [NO = 33% or less] f α  =    2.2(.75) – 0.7 = 1 or >1 [YES = 75% or more] Example:  What is f α   when X α  is 50%  Prediction of Protein  α  Structure from Amino Acid Compositio
