The Impact of Fluoroproline Isomers on the Folding and Thermodynamic Stability of Globular Proteins

4-substituted proline analogues are of particular interest for investigating protein folding kinetics and thermodynamic stability, as substituents at the Cγ atom of proline have a strong effect on the two main conformational equilibria of proline residues in polypeptides, namely the endo/exo ring puckering of the proline ring and the cis/trans equilibrium of prolyl peptide bonds. The insta…
