mutable poly-proline helix

Why are the prolines on the frozen backbone mutable?

Good question!

A poly-proline helix doesn't have to be made entirely of proline. Any set of residues that adopt the appropriate dihedral angles can be classified as a poly-proline helix. Proline is simply one of the few amino acids that can easily do so.
