Refolding of partially thermo-unfolded cinnamomin A-chain mediated by B-chain.

The pure cinnamomin A-chain is unstable compared to that in the mixture of A- and B-chain or in intact cinnamomin molecule either being stored at 4 degrees C or being heated. When being heated at 45 degrees C for 20min, the A-chain generates partially unfolded intermediate and loses its tertiary structure as monitored by circular dichroism (CD) and… CONTINUE READING
