Effect of prolyl isomerase on the folding reactions of staphylococcal nuclease.

The low-temperature fluorescence-detected refolding of staphylococcal nuclease (SNase) can be described by three slow kinetic phases. The slowest phase is absent in the P117G mutant of SNase. Peptidyl prolyl cis-trans isomerase (cyclophilin), which has been shown to catalyze the slow folding reactions of some proteins, was employed to determine which of the… CONTINUE READING
