Abstract

Recent studies have found that protein folding reactions often proceed through two or more kinetically distinct pathways. In at least some cases, the observed folding intermediates act as kinetic traps, slowing the rate at which folding is completed. These findings have important implications for understanding how proteins fold in vitro and in vivo.
