Protein folding (chemistry)

What entropy do folded proteins have?
lower than the unfolded state, with different bonds.
1 of 6
Do you gain or lose entropy with hydrophobic interaction?
Gain at 2.4 entropy.
2 of 6
what are chaperones?
Proteins that assist the folding/unfolding of proteins.
3 of 6
what is the equation for entropy?
s=Boltzmann constant * W(number of states)
4 of 6
How do proteins fold?
In a folding pathway. not trial and error. it is fast and spontaneous. Helicies form first sheets form last (as they are a default structure)
5 of 6
Protein structure.
Proteins have evolved to form a structure that is only just stable at -10kcalmol-1. so are very easily unstable due to temp or pH changes.
