The Solution Structures of Transfer RNA and Ribonuclease in Different Solvents

  • Giuseppe Zaccai
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 27)


Small-angle neutron scattering studies from solution, especially those using contrast variation, have usually been done with the assumption that a macromolecule of well-defined structure exists in a homogeneous solvent. This might be a good approximation in certain cases, but it is not a correct assumption because the very presence of the macromolecule perturbs the solvent in an unknown way.
