Abstract : The tyrosine rich eggshell protein referred to as F4 has been modelled exhaustively both by computer simulation and by physical studies of synthetic peptides. Our conclusion is that the tyrosine rich region of this protein probably forms a left-handed alpha helix. I have established the suggestion, based on the established protein segnonces, that the absence of phenylalanine residues may suggest a role in electron transplant.
