salt bridge

[′sȯlt ‚brij]
(physical chemistry)
A bridge of a salt solution, usually potassium chloride, placed between the two half-cells of a galvanic cell, either to reduce to a minimum the potential of the liquid junction between the solutions of the two half-cells or to isolate a solution under study from a reference half-cell and prevent chemical precipitations.

For salt bridges, there were two significant salt bridges in the LRDPSO docking result, which were ASP419-LYS1 and GLU229-LYS3.
We argue that salt bridges between tails and between heads, mediated, respectively, by cations and anions, are alternatives to peptide bonds, the preferred bond in pure water, thus favouring radial and longitudinal nanotube growth.
Interaction profile of Cry2Ac11 with ALP showed 2 salt bridges, 21 hydrogen bonds and 224 other interactions including non- bonded contacts predicting it as a weak interaction.

Start by pushing a broom handle down into the salt to break up salt bridges (like a dome), blocking salt from dropping to the bottom of the tank.
Furthermore, the authors found that it is possible to analyze the chemical composition of the released salt bridges. Additional studies are underway to further correlate globally available Pb-free alloy compositions to the aforementioned failure mechanisms.
