Abstract:

While in vitro experiments have contributed much to our understanding of protein folding, we know much less about how proteins fold in the more complex environment of the cell. This review summarizes our current knowledge of the earliest in vivo folding intermediates: the conformations adopted by nascent polypeptides during synthesis by the ribosome. The challenges related to successful folding in the cellular environment, including off-pathway aggregation and macromolecular crowding, are also discussed.

Keywords: aggregation; co-translational; folding; intermediate; misfolding; protein; ribosome; translation

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.
