Millisecond Protein Folding Studied by NMR Spectroscopy
Abstract:Proteins are involved in virtually every biological process and in order to function, it is necessary for these polypeptide chains to fold into the unique, native conformation. This folding process can take place rapidly. NMR line shape analyses and transverse relaxation measurements allow protein folding studies on a microsecondto- millisecond time scale. Together with an overview of current achievements within this field, we present millisecond protein folding studies by NMR of the cold shock protein CspB from Bacillus subtilis.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
