Short Communication

About 38 years ago a very important paper with the title “Origin of the right-handed twist of beta-sheets of poly-L-valine chains” [1] was published. Ever since then, this paper has played very important role for investigation into the three-dimensional (3D) structures of proteins [2-20].
