All-α proteins


All-α proteins

An all-α proteins is a class of structural domains in which the secondary structure is composed entirely of α-helices, with the possible exception of a few isolated β-sheets on the periphery.

Common examples include the bromodomain, the globin fold and the homeodomain fold.
