Prolyl isomerases catalyze antibody folding in vitro.


Some slow-folding phases in the in vitro refolding of proteins originate from the isomerization of prolyl-peptide bonds, which can be accelerated by a class of enzymes called prolyl isomerases (PPIs). We used the in vitro folding of an antibody Fab fragment as a model system to study the effect of PPI on a folding reaction that is only partially reversible… (More)
