Two factors provide key contributions to the stability of thermophilic proteins relative to their mesophilic homologues: electrostatic interactions of charged residues in the folded state and the dielectric response of the folded protein. The dielectric response for proteins in a "thermophilic series" globally modulates the thermal stability of its members, with the calculated dielectric constant for the protein increasing from mesophiles to hyperthermophiles. This variability results from… CONTINUE READING
