The invention refers to modular components to be used in the construction of molecular models representing protein structures. More specifically, the invention discloses components representing parts of the protein which do not form elements of secondary structure and parts of elements of secondary structure, as well as their connections, to build models representing the fold of any protein structure, or even models which are proportional to their real size by establishing a given scale. Said models are useful for teaching purposes and for visualizing protein structure during research work in the field.
