A magnetization-transfer nuclear magnetic resonance study of the folding of staphylococcal nuclease.

The equilibrium between alternative folded states of a globular protein, staphylococcal nuclease, has been investigated by using 1H NMR. Magnetization-transfer experiments have revealed the existence of a related structural heterogeneity of the unfolded state, and quantitative analysis of a series of these experiments has permitted the kinetics of folding… CONTINUE READING
