As a model for the well-characterized protein systems in different folding states we chose apo-myoglobin.[1,2,3] We investigated internal dynamics of its unfolded and folded form on a time-scale up to several hundred nanoseconds and in the nanometer length-scale using neutron spin echo spectroscopy (NSE) [4]. Aggregation state and center of mass diffusion were monitored in parallel with dynamic light scattering. Our first NSE data show a polymer like behavior of the unfolded protein. This indicates that the powerful polymer models may be used for characterization of protein systems.
