A method for study of nonlinear kinetics of coil-helix transition in
collagen-type structures has been proposed. The method has been tested for one
of such structures with molecules having 40 nm in length. On the basis of
experimental data a time of shaping of triple helix has been estimated. The
given method has been proposed to be used in selecting a length of СМР
Mimetic Peptides) molecules used in the modern medical science.
