Protein Stability (thermal) Protein engineering (mutagenesis) 1. S-S bridges a. -CH2-S-S-CH2- b. Analysis of all possibilities (many) c. Energy minimization to reduce to a few plausible candidates d. Site-selective mutations e. Protein synthesis f. Assay: example – T4 lysozyme (x-ray structure known) Reducing degrees of freedom (entropy) increases protein stability
