Initial loss of secondary structure in the unfolding of barstar

Nature Structural Biology volume 3, pages 920923 (1996) | Download Citation

Subjects

Rapid (millisecond) far-UV circular dichroism and fluorescence-monitored kinetic studies of the unfolding of barstar demonstrate the accumulation of a compact intermediate devoid of much secondary structure, before the rate limiting step in unfolding.
