Structure of collagen. Each collagen helix is called the α chain, which is a levorotatory strand with about 3 residues per turn of glycine (Gly), proline (Pro), and hydroxyproline (Hyp) sequences. The quaternary structure of the collagen fibril is formed from the supercoiling of three α chains to form a triple dextrorotatory helix.
