8 Peptide backbone: a string of beads How does a polypeptide fold up? Rotation around C α -N and C α -C
Background image of page 8
9 Relative orientation of peptide groups is speciFed by the φ and ψ angles φ (phi): rotation around C α -N ψ (psi) rotation around C α -C φ and ψ torsion angles or dihedral angles

• When both peptide groups are in the same plane and the polypeptide is stretched out , the torsion angles are defned as 180° • Looking From the C α rotating clockwise increases the angle
