|Abstract:||Nascent polypeptide chains fold cotranslationally, but the atomic‐level details of this process remain unknown. Here, we report crystallographic, de novo modeling, and spectroscopic studies of intermediate‐length variants of the λ repressor N‐terminal domain. Although the ranges of helical regions of the half‐length variant were almost identical to those of the full‐length protein, the relative orientations of these helices in the intermediate‐length variants differed. Our results suggest that cotranslational folding of the λ repressor initially forms a helical structure with a transient conformation, as in the case of a molten globule state. This conformation subsequently matures during the course of protein synthesis.|
