In order to clarify whether modulation of long-range interactions in the denatured state affect native disulfide bond (SS bond) formations of hen egg white lysozyme (HEL) containing a pair of cysteine residues, we examined the extent of SS bond formation among 12 variants containing a pair of cysteines. The loss of clusters 5 and 6 in the denatured state affected the formation of Cys30-Cys115 and Cys6-Cys127 respectively.
