Unformatted text preview: Folding •  Protein folding process is spontaneous (– ∆G) •  4. There is a favorable enthalpy term (–∆H) from the forma:on of covalent disulfide bonds ∆G = ∆H – T∆S Protein Folding •  Proteins folding follow a disNnct path •  1) Small regions of secondary structure fold first •  2) These secondary structures are then incorporated into moNfs and domain •  Ionic interac:ons, as well as hydrophobic interac:ons can guide fol...
