It was shown that the widespread quasi-plane models of the Pauling protein structure do not reflect and even contradict the spatial structures of the protein in various conformations. It was found that the linear structures and β - structures of the protein in space of the highest dimension have translational symmetry. The elementary elements of the protein translational symmetry were determined, and their dimensions were calculated (9 for the linear structures and 23 for β - structures).
