As to the stability issue for globular proteins under the impact of different additives, including RTILs, it can be adequately approached by the method of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) [4, 5, 8-11,13-17, 23-26].
As determined from the calibration curve obtained with globular protein standards, the expected adjusted [V.
Other unordered regions connecting helices A and B, B and C, C and D, and D and E were not recognized by the mAbs; this is different from what is known for globular proteins, for which antigenicity is often associated with loop regions connecting elements of regular secondary structure.
Several globular proteins, including gluten [82], corn protein [44], soy protein [50], and whey protein [83] etc.
Some areas discussed include gelation and thickening with globular proteins at low temperatures, comparison of thermal and nontheraml characterization of bioglasses, high-pressure treatment effects on food proteins of animal origin, novel techniques for soybean processing, and rheological properties of liquid foods processed in a continuous-flow high-pressure throttling system.
Globular proteins are widely used in the food industry to facilitate the formation and stabilization of foam [3].
Binding (non-covalent) and grafting (covalent) methods make it possible to attach globular proteins to polymer surfaces.
In view of the inherent instability of most globular proteins (Somero, 1995; Hochachka and Somero, 2002) and the lack of detectable protein turnover in these embryos (Clegg, 1997; Tanguay et al.
Later, when the first globular proteins were finally solved by X-ray crystallography, they revealed that the alpha helix was, in fact, a widespread motif in the folding of many proteins.
The BIAPD can be used in conjunction with Brookhaven's ZetaPALS instruments to take measurements of small globular proteins, micelles, microemulsions, superfine inorganic oxides, metal particles and hydrated salt ions.
Just as it is difficult to thread a needle with tightly bunched-up string, it is difficult for globular proteins to pass through membranes.
