  Using the theory of polytopic prismahedrons [1-4], the structure of complete filling (partitioning) of the space of globular proteins with residues of amino acid molecules, accompanied by the formation of various conformations of fibrillar proteins: spirals of structures with parallel and antiparallel amino acid residues, is investigated. Since the residue of an amino acid is geometrically an object of dimension 4 (a tetrahedron with a center), the structure of a globular protein is modeled by a set of connected tetrahedrons with a center, which form a space of the highest dimension. Examples of the thus obtained native structures of the highest dimension that simulate the structure of globular proteins are given.
