The unfolding of the apo and holo forms of bovine alpha-lactalbumin (alpha-LA) upon reduction by dithiothreitol (DTT) in the presence of the small heat-shock protein alpha-crystallin, a molecular chaperone, has been monitored by visible and UV absorption spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and (1)H NMR spectroscopy. From these data, a description and a time-course of the events that result from the unfolding of both forms of the protein, and the state of the protein that interacts with alpha-crys...Expand abstract
