This report describes an integrated investigation of the refolding and reductive unfolding of insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) and its variant, long R(3) IGF-I (LR(3)IGF-I), which has a Glu(3) to Arg(3) substitution and a hydrophobic 13-amino acid N-terminal extension. The refolding performed in glutathione redox buffer was quenched at different time points by adjusting the pH to 2.0-3.0 with a 1 N HCl solution of 1-cyano-4-dimethylaminopyridinium tetrafluoroborate, which trapped… CONTINUE READING
