Regarding the impact of Alg on the aggregation of the proteins, it should be noted that both albumin and Alg have a net negative charge in the working pH and therefore, there is a preliminary electrostatic repulsion between them (27, 28).
As the pH value of the medium increases, the carboxylic acid groups become ionized and the electrostatic repulsion between the molecular chains is predominated, which leads to the network more expanding.
The basic interactions that compete in the phenomenon of colloidal stability are the short-range, van der Waals attraction, and long-range electrostatic repulsion.
Most likely, in this pH range macromolecules are straightened by electrostatic repulsion of ionized carboxyl groups.
0x10 molL -1 , the electrostatic repulsion between the head groups of SDS could initiate the partial unfolding.
The stability of colloidal dispersion is controlled by steric or electrostatic repulsion forces between particles.
6), the net negative charge on casein is reduced, which decreases electrostatic repulsion between charged groups, including the phosphoserine residues that are exposed when the CCP is solubilized.
It requires breaking through the barrier of electrostatic repulsion at larger scales in the atom and then using the attractive forces binding the nucleus to lasso the two nuclei together.
If both of these needs are met, then electrostatic repulsion will take place between approaching particles and stability can be achieved," he states.
Because of the non-charged backbone, PNA probes--unlike DNA probes--do not encounter electrostatic repulsion, allowing them to hybridize rapidly and tightly to nucleic-acid targets.
The process negatively charges Cryptospordium oocysts, causing it to charge near neutral, thereby eliminating the natural electrostatic repulsion instead of repelling sand grains, a limitation of older sand filtration technology.
The concentration of citrus fiber had no effect on droplet size at pH 7 due to the electrostatic repulsion between the negatively charged WPI and citrus fiber molecules.
