It is shown that the folding of a C(alpha) model of chymotyprsin inhibitor (CI2) protein cannot be described by either diffusion (Smoluchowski equation, SE) or a normal-diffusion continuous time random walk of a single order parameter under the influence of the thermodynamic force. The reason for these failures is that the order parameter follows… CONTINUE READING
