The formation of β−sheets can be classified as either parallel or antiparallel, both of which are made of β−strands that are connected by β−turns. As long as the protein does not become circular forming a β−barrel-like structure, it is expected that the number of β−turns would be 1 less than the number of β−strands.
Consider a β−sheet consisting of 6 β−strands connected through β−turns. How many β−turns are required?
