A site-directed spin labelling study of the human alpha-lactalbumin molten globule

Abstract:

The human α-lactalbumin (α-LA) molten globule formed at low pH is a model for the study of protein folding intermediates. The molten globule lacks native-like side-chain interactions, resulting in a fluctuating ensemble of tertiary structures, characterisation of which has been precluded by severe line-broadening in NMR spectra and a lack of long-range NOEs. Paramagnetic relaxation enhancements (PREs) have been measured in a variant of α-LA in which all native cysteines have been mutated t...
