Folding Process of Myoglobin – Protein Folding Kinetics



Helix Formation – Myoglobin


Click the structures and reaction black arrows in sequence to view the 3D models and animations respectively

The animation is simply based on the results of a series of calculations for rational intermediate frames using the Yale Morph Server and Spartan08 Fixer to produce viable pdb files. It is a rough demonstration of protein folding.

Experimentally, the first step of folding myoglobin is found to be the formation of secondary structures of 1, 7 and 8 helices (shown below), followed by 2 helix and then the rest of the protein. Native secondary structures are expected to form in their original regions and assemble into final structure by collision and diffusion.
