b. Parallel β sheet.
c. α helix.
d. α sheet.
e. β turn.

a. Collagen is a protein in which the polypeptides are mainly in the α-helix conformation.
b. Disulfide linkages are important for keratin structure.
c. Gly residues are particularly abundant in collagen.
d. an α-keratin chain contains 7-residue pseudo-repeats of nonpolar/polar arrangements.
e. α-keratin is a protein in which the polypeptides are mainly in the α-helix conformation.

6. Experiments on denaturation and renaturation after the reduction and reoxidation of the -S-S- bonds in the enzyme ribonuclease (RNase) have shown that:
a. Folding of denatured RNase into the native, active conformation requires the input of energy in the form of hat.
b. Native ribonuclease does not have a unique secondary and tertiary structure.
c. The completely unfolded enzyme, with all -S-S- bonds broken, is still enzymatically active.
d. The enzyme, dissolved in water, is thermodynamically stable relative to the mixture of amino acids whose residues are contained in RNase.

e. a & b only.

8. A tandem mass spectrometer can sequence short peptides by:
1. hydrolysis of peptide bonds with a strong acid and identifying the amino acids by HPLC.
2. fragmenting the peptide and comparing the fragment masses.
3. determining the absorbance of the peptide at 280 nm.
4. measuring the molecular mass of the whole peptide.
5. the transfer of magnetization from one nuclei to another.
