Turn (biochemistry) - Types of Turns - Hairpins
... A hairpin is a special case of a turn, in which the direction of the protein backbone reverses and the flanking secondary structure elements interact ... For example, a β-hairpin connects two hydrogen-bonded, antiparallel β-strands ... a rather confusing name, since a β-hairpin may contain many types of turns - α,β,γ, etc.) β-hairpins may be classified according to the number of residues that make up the turn ...
