    • ‘Coding-sequence nucleotide substitution is an important mechanism driving the differential adaptive evolution of species and has been studied most notably in hemoglobin, ribonuclease, and lysozyme.’
    • ‘The unfolding pathway was compared with that of the parent enzyme ribonuclease A (RNase A), and a model was devised to assess the importance of the dissociation in the unfolding.’
