This is achieved by combining the elements of secondary structure (α-helices, β-sheets, and turns) in a unique three-dimensional arrangement, or tertiary structure. It is the tertiary structure that affords proteins their unique biological function, whether it be purely structural, the precise spatial organization of side chains to effect catalysis of a reaction, presentation of a surface or loop for signaling or inhibition, creating a cavity or groove to bind ligand, or any of the other vast range of functions that proteins can perform.

The controversy with regard to whether protein folding follows a specific pathway or whether each molecule follows a completely different trajectory to achieve its final folded state has been elegantly resolved in the new view of protein folding (68–70). The centerpiece of this theory is the concept of a protein energy landscape in the conformational space, which is discussed in the following section. 4. 1. Protein Conformational Ensembles and Energy Landscapes: Enthalpic and Entropic Considerations Classically, a simple chemical reaction is considered to proceed along a reaction coordinate, in which chemical bonds are formed or broken in a well-defined manner, with a transition state at the highest point on the energy profile where bond breaking and formation are occurring, and possibly detectable metastable intermediate structures at local free energy minima.

Binding has traditionally been considered within a framework of the structure–function paradigm, a cornerstone of molecular biology for many years. It was over a hundred years ago that Fischer coined the term lock-and-key to emphasize the requirement for a stereochemical fit between an enzyme and its substrate in order for binding to occur (90). The limits of this view of the binding process became obvious in the middle of the last century, when a large body of newly acquired information on enzyme kinetics appeared to be in conflict with the notion that “the enzyme was a rather rigid negative of the substrate and that the substrate had to fit into this negative to react” (91).
