An intermediate seeks instant gratification

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Φ-value analysis of the four-helix protein Im7 reveals that a folding intermediate with non-native structure rapidly forms en route to the native state, even though the protein topology is very simple. Energetic frustration, at least partially induced by functional constraints, appears to play a significant role.
