Chemical Denaturation

Interactions between proteins and surfactants are of relevance in many applications including food, washing powder formulations, and drug formulation. The anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate SDS is known to unfold globular proteins, while the non-ionic surfactant octaethyleneglycol monododecyl ether C 12 E 8 can be used to refold proteins from their SDS-denatured state.

While unfolding have been studied in detail at the protein level, a complete picture of the interplay between protein and surfactant in these processes is lacking. We combined stopped-flow time-resolved SAXS, fluorescence, and circular dichroism, respectively, to provide an unprecedented in-depth picture of the different steps involved in both protein unfolding and refolding in the presence of SDS and C 12 E 8.

This involved an initial rapid process where protein and SDS formed aggregates, followed by two slower processes, where the complexes first disaggregated into single protein structures situated asymmetrically on the SDS micelles, followed by isotropic redistribution of the protein. Refolding of bLG involved two steps: extraction of most of the SDS from the complexes followed by protein refolding. These results reveal that surfactant-mediated unfolding and refolding of proteins are complex processes with rearrangements occurring on time scales from sub-milliseconds to minutes.

Protein folding

Chemical unfolding ; Solvent denaturation. Chemical denaturation is a means of rendering proteins nonfunctional via addition of denaturing agents denaturants to the solvent. The polypeptide remains chemically intact; denaturation occurs through unfolding of the precise, ordered three-dimensional shape that is typically required for biological function. Chemical denaturation is commonly used for measuring the conformational stability of globular proteins. While chemical denaturation has been in use for decades, the precise mechanism by which denaturants unfold proteins is still under investigation. Denaturants are also useful in rendering soluble otherwise insoluble forms for proteins and can be used to dissolve aggregates. Chemically denatured proteins are often used as starting points in kinetic studies of protein folding.

Protein folding

Protein folding is the physical process by which a protein chain is translated to its native three-dimensional structure , typically a "folded" conformation by which the protein becomes biologically functional. Via an expeditious and reproducible process, a polypeptide folds into its characteristic three-dimensional structure from a random coil. At this stage the polypeptide lacks any stable long-lasting three-dimensional structure the left hand side of the first figure. As the polypeptide chain is being synthesized by a ribosome , the linear chain begins to fold into its three-dimensional structure.

Urea-induced protein denaturation is widely used to study protein folding and stability; however, the molecular mechanism and driving forces of this process are not yet fully understood. In particular, it is unclear whether either hydrophobic or polar interactions between urea molecules and residues at the protein surface drive denaturation. To address this question, here, many molecular dynamics simulations totalling ca. For apolar driving forces, hypopolar urea should show increased denaturation power; for polar driving forces, hyperpolar urea should be the stronger denaturant.

Protein folding: a perspective for biology, medicine and biotechnology. At the present time, protein folding is an extremely active field of research including aspects of biology, chemistry, biochemistry, computer science and physics. The fundamental principles have practical applications in the exploitation of the advances in genome research, in the understanding of different pathologies and in the design of novel proteins with special functions. Although the detailed mechanisms of folding are not completely known, significant advances have been made in the understanding of this complex process through both experimental and theoretical approaches. In this review, the evolution of concepts from Anfinsen's postulate to the "new view" emphasizing the concept of the energy landscape of folding is presented. The main rules of protein folding have been established from in vitro experiments.

Поправив очки в железной оправе, человек посмотрел вслед удаляющемуся автобусу. Дэвид Беккер исчез, но это ненадолго. Из всех севильских автобусов мистер Беккер выбрал пользующийся дурной славой 27-й маршрут. Автобус номер 27 следует к хорошо известной конечной остановке.
