Question: 2 6 pt ribonuclease 124 residues and lysozyme 129 residues...

Question details

2) (6 pt) Ribonuclease (124 residues) and lysozyme (129 residues) are compactly folded, soluble proteins. The structures of both proteins are shown below in a cartoon representation. The table below shows values of ΔΗ and ASfor the folding of these proteins (i.e., for: U-) F) at 25 °C. Based on their similarities in size and the information in the table, which protein do you predict buries the greater hydrophobic surface area upon folding? Explain your answer (and justify any assumptions you make). Protein ribonuclease lysozyme |-280 k/mol | -790 J/(mol K) 220 k/mol 530 J/(mol K) Ribonuclease Lysozyme
