An important but relatively unknown protein modification is PHBylation. In this book, the authors review the physical properties and molecular characteristics of PHB, and discuss the influences of PHBylation on protein folding. In the second chapter, protein-folding mechanisms, namely the framework model and nucleation-condensation mechanism are discussed. The final chapter examines the fundamental physical law governing protein folding – the Thermodynamic Principle.
