We demonstrate that an external constant electric field is able to modify the secondary structure of a protein and induce a transition from a beta-sheet into a helix-like conformation. This dramatic change is driven by a global rearrangement of the dipole moments at the amide planes. We also predict electric-field-induced modifications of the intermediate states of the protein.
