dc.description.abstractThe native form of serpins (serine protease inhibitors) is metastable, which is critical to their biological functions. Spontaneous conversion from the native form of serpins into a more stable conformation, called the “latent” form, is restricted. To examine whether the connectivity of strand 1 of b-sheet C to the hydrophobic core is critical to the serpin’s preferential folding to the metastable native conformation, we designed a circularly-permuted mutant of a1-antitrypsin, the prototype serpin, in which strand 1C is disconnected from the hydrophobic core. Conformation of the circular permutant was similar to that of the latent form, as revealed by equilibrium unfolding, limited proteolysis, and spectroscopic properties. Our results support the notion that rapid folding of the hydrophobic core with concomitant incorporation of strand 1C into b-sheet C traps the serpin molecule into its native metastable conformation.-
