I derive an expression for the rate of contact formation between two residues in a polymer chain when both residues undergo native to non-native conformational transitions. A contact can only form when the two residues are brought into contact by interresidue diffusion and are in the native conformations at the same time. The entropy of the chain connecting the two residues are accounted for by the potential of mean force for the interresidue distance. Both the equilibrium probabilities of thedoi:10.1063/1.1531588 fatcat:df4hqwlox5dxray7nefqutbp3a
