Description Contents Teacher Resources

A hands-on tool to demonstrate how the linear amino acid sequence defines the primary structure of a protein. Magnetic pieces allow your students to assemble an α-helix or anti-parallel β-sheet, then explore secondary and tertiary protein structure.

This kit allows your students to build each of 2 important protein secondary structures – an alpha helix and a beta sheet. After joining together the magnetic backbone amino acid units to form the 2 structures, your students will actually feel the stabilizing effect of the hydrogen bonds as they are added to the backbone units. Then your students can add amino acid side chains, modeling specific α-helices and β-sheets.

The models are made of plaster in ball and stick format and follow the standard CPK color scheme. They will break if dropped, held tightly or handled roughly. The kit contains 11 alpha helix pieces, 10 beta sheet pieces, 11 hydrogen bond pieces and 30 side chains.

The Alpha Helix Beta Sheet Construction Kit© is most effective when used in conjunction with 3-D Molecular Designs’ α-Helix Models, β-Sheet Models, β-Globin Protein Mini Models and Green Fluorescent Protein Mini Model.
