Protein aggregation and particle formation have been observed when protein solutions contact hydrophobic interfaces, and it has been suggested that this undesirable phenomenon may be initiated by interfacial adsorption and subsequent gelation of the protein. The addition of surfactants, such as polysorbate 20, to protein formulations has been proposed as a(More)
High-throughput single-molecule total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy was used to investigate the effects of pH and ionic strength on bovine serum albumin (BSA) adsorption, desorption, and interfacial diffusion at the aqueous-fused silica interface. At high pH and low ionic strength, negatively charged BSA adsorbed slowly to the negatively(More)
The presence of micron aggregates in protein formulations has recently attracted increased interest from regulatory authorities, industry, and academia because of the potential undesired side effects of their presence. In this study, we characterized the micron aggregate formation of hen egg-white lysozyme (Lyz) and its diPEGylated (5 kDa) analog as a(More)
Using high throughput single-molecule total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM), we have acquired molecular trajectories of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and hen egg white lysozyme during protein layer formation at the silicone oil-water interface. These trajectories were analyzed to determine the distribution of molecular diffusion(More)
