The distribution of counterions in solutions of high molecular mass hyaluronic acid, in near-physiological conditions where mono- and divalent ions are simultaneously present, is studied by small angle neutron scattering and anomalous small angle x-ray scattering. The solutions contain either sodium or rubidium chloride together with varying concentrations(More)
The physiological functions of biological macromolecules strongly depend upon their conformation. Study of the thermodynamic and structural aspects of ion/polymer interactions has the potential to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of ion mediated structural organization of charged biomacromolecules (e.g., nucleic acids, proteins,(More)
