Abstract

The non-native states of the model protein hen lysozyme (native state shown in picture) were investigated by using site-directed mutagenesis in combination with high-resolution NMR spectroscopy. The disruptions of the interactions between hydrophobic clusters by single point mutations dramatically alter the overall compactness of the unfolded state: single point mutations can turn a compact unfolded state into an extended state.
