Solution Properties of Proteins

  • Felix Franks
Part of the Biological Methods book series (BM)


The conformational stability of a protein is determined by intramolecular factors and solvent interactions (hydration); to obtain information about the latter, dilute solutions have to be employed. The solubility is determined primarily by intermolecular effects (protein/protein), but proteins are solvated, so that hydration effects are also involved in changes in solubility. Protein/water interactions are discussed in detail in  Chapter 5.
