Abstract: The process by which small proteins fold to their native conformations has been intensively studied over the last few decades. In this field, the particular chemistry of disulfide bond formation has facilitated the characterization of the oxidative folding of numerous small, disulfide-rich proteins with results that illustrate a high diversity of folding mechanisms, differing in the heterogeneity and disulfide pairing nativeness of their intermediates. In this review, we combine information on the folding of different protein models together with the recent structural determinations of major intermediates to provide new molecular clues in oxidative folding. Also, we turn to analyze the role of disulfide bonds in misfolding and protein aggregation and their implications in amyloidosis and conformational diseases.
