On the choice of reference mutant states in the application of the double-mutant cycle method.


Pairwise interactions in proteins can be detected and, in certain circumstances, their strength measured by applying the method of double-mutant cycles. Such cycles comprise wild type protein, two single mutants and the corresponding double mutant. The analysis of double-mutant cycles is most straightforward when the mutations are to alanine since… (More)
