Category STRUCT_SHEET_TOPOLOGY

Name:
'struct_sheet_topology'

Description:

   Data items in the STRUCT_SHEET_TOPOLOGY category record details
   about the topology of the residue ranges that form a beta-sheet.
   All topology links are pairwise and the specified pairs are
   assumed to be successive in the amino-acid sequence. These
   data items are useful in describing various simple and complex
   folds, but they become inadequate when the strands in the sheet
   come from more than one chain. The
   STRUCT_SHEET_ORDER data items can be used to describe
   single- and multiple-chain-containing sheets.

Examples:

Example 1 - simple beta-barrel.
