Native state hydrogen exchange experiments have shown that the cytochrome c (Cyt c) protein consists of five cooperative folding-unfolding units, called foldons. These are named, in the order of increasing unfolding free energy, the nested-Yellow, Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue foldons. Previous results suggest that these units unfold in a stepwise sequential way so that each higher energy partially unfolded form includes all of the previously unfolded lower free energy units. If this is so, then… CONTINUE READING
