Carbon Dioxide as a Reagent for Proteins

  • M. A. Mitz


Carbon dioxide gas is an extremely valuable reagent for processing enzymes and other proteins in water solution. The basic process depends simply upon the change in partial pressure of CO2 gas over the water solution. The process can influence proteins by a) increasing the rate of solution, b) increasing the solubility, c) stabilizing the proteins, d) changing dissociation reactions, and can be used for e) fractionation and purification and f) chromatography applications.
