Single-molecule spectroscopy of protein folding dynamics - expanding scope and timescales - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Schuler, Benjamin; Hofmann, Hagen (2013). Single-molecule spectroscopy of protein folding dynamics - expanding scope and timescales. Current Opinion in Structural Biology, 23(1):36-47.

Abstract

Single-molecule spectroscopy has developed into an important method for probing protein structure and dynamics, especially in structurally heterogeneous systems. A broad range of questions in the diversifying field of protein folding have been addressed with single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) and photo-induced electron transfer (PET). Building on more than a decade of rapid method development, these techniques can now be used to investigate a wide span of timescales, an aspect that we focus on in this review. Important current topics range from the structure and dynamics of unfolded and intrinsically disordered proteins, including the coupling of folding and binding, to transition path times, the folding and misfolding of larger proteins, and their interactions with molecular chaperones.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
