Fast-folding experiments and the topography of protein folding energy landscapes

Fast-folding experiments and the topography of protein folding energy landscapes

Chemistry and Biology 3(6): 425-432

The rapid folding of certain proteins can be described theoretically using an energy landscape in the shape of a folding funnel. New techniques have allowed the examination of fast-folding events that occur in microseconds or less, and have tested the predictions of the theoretical models.
