Method Calculated from Table 1. Based on tau=ln2/(kfold)+ln2/kox where tau is the maturation time, kfold is the folding constant and kox the oxidation constant (the slowest step). To calculate folding rate, the denaturation dynamics was followed and return of fluorescent signal was measured. For oxidation rate, denaturation plus reduction was performed and then renaturation together with dilution of the reducing element and temporal measurement of fluorescence accumulation in vitro.
Comments Venus includes 4 mutations for enhanced folding and one mutations for faster maturation (all in respect to EYFP). Value should be =2 minutes not <=
