The roles of stability and contact order in determining protein folding rates


nature structural biology • volume 8 number 1 • january 2001 21 The mechanism by which a protein folds, like any reaction, is determined by the underlying free energy surface 1. A large separation in energy between the native state and the structurally dissimilar states (an 'energy gap') has been shown to be a thermodynamic and kinetic requirement for… (More)
