By Monte Carlo simulations, we explored the effect of single mutations on the thermodynamics and kinetics of the folding of a two-dimensional, energetically frustrated, hydrophobic protein model. Phi-Value analysis, corroborated by simulations beginning from given sets of judiciously chosen initial contacts, suggests that the transition state of the model(More)
The relevance of inside-outside segregation and chain compaction for the thermodynamics of folding of a hydrophobic protein model is probed by complete enumeration of two-dimensional chains of up to 18 monomers in the square lattice. The exact computation of Z scores for uniquely designed sequences confirms that Z tends to decrease linearly with sigma(More)
