More compact protein globules exhibit slower folding rates.

Abstract

We have demonstrated that, among proteins of the same size, alpha/beta proteins have on the average a greater number of contacts per residue due to their more compact (more "spherical") structure, rather than due to tighter packing. We have examined the relationship between the average number of contacts per residue and folding rates in globular proteins… (More)
