The type of bond that is most important in maintaining secondary structure of a protein is

A. disulphide bridges

B. hydrogen bonding within the backbone

C. hydrogen bonding between R group

D. salt bridges

A

In a protein, there are 4 different levels or types of structures: the primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary structures. The secondary structure of a protein is the formation of either a beta helix an alpha helix, or a random coil structure.

The secondary protein structure is formed when a polypeptide chain folds, the side chains interact using hydrogen bonds, so it is maintained by the hydrogen bonding between the R group.
