Título: Protein folding, metal ions and conformational states: the case of a di-cluster ferredoxin
Autor: Leal, Sónia S.
Orientador: Gomes, Cláudio M.
Issue Date: 2010
Resumo: Metal ions are present in over thirty percent of known proteins. Apart from a well established function in catalysis and electron transfer, metals and metal centres are also important structural elements which may as well play a key role in modulating protein folding and stability. In this respect, cofactors can act not only as local structural stabilizing elements in the native state, contributing to the maintenance of a given specific structural fold, but may also function as potential nucleation points during the protein folding process...
