The overall forward and reverse rate constants for the hexamer-dodecamer reaction of lobster hemocyanin have been determined in 0.1 ionic strength glycine buffers at pH 9.6, at free calcium ion levels from 0.0031 to 0.0053 molar, at 25 degrees C. Concentration-jump relaxation experiments in a stopped-flow apparatus were monitored by light scattered at 90(More)
Simulations for the moving-boundary ultracentrifuge behavior of Helix pomatia alpha-hemocyanin have been developed, based on modification of published models. In the present treatment, it has been assumed that the protein system is extensively microheterogeneous, with respect to its whole-half molecule reactivity. It has also been assumed that all such(More)
Two samples of highly purified bovine beta-casein supplied to us by Dr. T.A.J. Payens of the National Institute for Dairy Research, Ede, The Netherlands, were studied over a range of concentration from just below the critical micelle concentration (CMC) to 0.46%, in 0.2 ionic strength phosphate buffer (pH 7.0), at 20 and 25 degrees C. The relaxation process(More)
The monomer-single polymer model of G.A. Gilbert (Disc. Faraday Soc. 20 (1955) 68) for moving boundary sedimentation has been used by Payens and colleagues to explain the observed results for bovine caseins, and by Harrington and colleagues to explain the observed results for myosin fibrils. Electron microscope pictures of Buchheim and Schmidt have(More)
The 'microheterogeneity model' (R.J. Siezen and R. van Driel, Biochim. Biophys. Acta 295 (1973) 131) and the 'incompetent whole molecule model' (G. Kegeles, Arch. Biochem. Biophys. 180 (1977) 530) for the dissociation of Helix pomatia alpha-hemocyanin whole molecules to half molecules were tested experimentally, using ultracentrifugation and stopped-flow(More)
Ultracentrifugal analysis of ribosomal purity is complicated by the rapid reequilibration of ribosomes with their subunits, and this is further enhanced by the effects of hydrostatic pressure. Fixation of the ribosome system prior to ultracentrifugal analysis supposedly freezes the reequilibration, and thus tends to obviate these difficulties. However, no(More)
