A molecular model of proline, a protein-forming amino acid synthesized in the human body. Proline's conformational rigidity contributes to the stability of a polypeptide's structure. For example, a polyproline helix is the principle secondary structure found in collagen. Atoms are coloured dark grey (carbon), light grey (hydrogen), red (oxygen) and blue (nitrogen).
