Is it really necessary to use the world "prolate" in this introduction? Natisto (talk) 14:15, 16 March 2010 (UTC)


Can anyone give a good reason why the word "moiety" links to "functional group"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.229.84.213 (talk) 22:30, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Because the two terms are used interchangeably in protein chemistry. --Dan|(talk) 10:54, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

amphipathic alpha-helix ?[edit]

I would like to see a section on amphipathic alpha helices here, as they are an important aspect of protein structure. I don't see exactly how to fit this in to the current structure, however. Also, I think the article should be called Amphipathic, with a redirect from Amphiphile. The latter is much less commonly used. --Dan|(talk) 10:54, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
