“Statistical mechanics of protein structural transitions: Insights from the island model”

【Significance】
Statistical mechanical theory of mechanism of protein folding

This review summarizes the genesis and statistical mechanical basis of the island model of protein structural transitions. The results obtained to date using the island model, remaining problems, and future work in the field of protein structures are discussed, referencing the late Professor Saitô’s views on the hierarchic structure of science. The island model holds that hydrophobic interactions are the key to both the folding and function of proteins.
