Abstract

IN a series of communications in NATURE, Dr. D. M. Wrinch1 has put forward a new hypothesis on the structure of certain proteins—the ‘cyclol-theory’. According to this, peptide chains should be capable of uniting to form two- and three-dimensional nets, three peptide residues forming a ring as in II: A, C, and E represent residues of the type R.CO.NH.CHR- ; B, D, and F residues of the type R.NH.CHR.CO-.
