Several definable turns and bends in protein structure have been recognized and classified either by the relationship between the phi,psi angles of the residues in the turn or the hydrogen bonding of their amide N-H and carbonyl-oxygen atoms.

The primary structure of a segment of a polypeptide chain or of a protein is the amino-acid sequence of the polypeptide chain(s), without regard to spatial arrangement (apart from configuration at the alpha-carbon atom).
The secondary structure of a segment of polypeptide chain is the local spatial arrangement of its main-chain atoms without regard to the conformation of its side chains or to its relationship with other segments (IUPAC-IUB, 1970).

Secondary structure alone is generally not statistically significant for the detection of noncoding RNAs.
We conclude that although a distinct, stable secondary structure is undoubtedly important in most noncoding RNAs, the stability of most noncoding RNA secondary structures is not sufficiently different from the predicted stability of a random sequence to be useful as a general genefinding approach.

Consensus structures for IIA and IIB are displayed by the links to the left (adapted from Michel et al., 1989 and Toor et al., 2001).
More recently, class IIC has been recognized, and is represented by all introns in bacterial class C. We have made consensus RNA structures for all phylogenetic subclasses (the subclasses are based on ORF relationships).
The mitochondrial class has a standard IIA1 structure; chloroplast-like class 1 has a standard IIB1 structure; chloroplast-like class 2 has a standard IIB2 structure; the remaining bacterial introns have somewhat “hybrid” and novel features.

 Circular Dichroism
Secondary structure can be determined by CD spectroscopy in the "far-uv" spectral region (190-250 nm).
The approximate fraction of each secondary structure type that is present in any protein can thus be determined by analyzing its far-uv CD spectrum as a sum of fractional multiples of such reference spectra for each structural type.
Changes in secondary structure, monitored in the far-UV CD region, can be determined with as little as 50 µg of protein, at concentrations of 0.2 mg/ml.

Essentially what is involved in an alpha helix is that the primary structure of the protein twists around upon itself in such a way, somewhat like rolling up this paper model, to form a recurring pattern that is very important.
A third type of secondary structure involves three strands of protein bonded together between the chains with hydrogen bonds and then twisted into a helix that is referred to as a collagen helix.
Whatever type of secondary structure is involved in a particular protein, the secondary structure is held in place by hydrogen bonding interactions between the amino group of the amino acid residue and the carbonyl group of another amino acid residue.

To further study the affects of the mutagenesis on the photoprotein structures, circular dichroism (CD) spectra were taken with each individual mutant using mutant 3 as a baseline for comparison of secondary structure.
CD spectra of these mutants demonstrated that complex changes had occurred within the secondary structure of the proteins as a result of the single amino acid substitutions.
Since these mutants have different bioluminescence and secondary structure characteristics, it is conceivable that they might demonstrate a change in their luminescence signal upon binding to an appropriate binder.
