Helix contents of sodium poly(L-glutamate) in aqueous NaCl solutions were estimated as functions of the degree of ionizalion, alpha. and the salt concentration by CD measurement. The helix content increases with increasing salt concentration but this helix stabilization decreases with decreasing alpha and at alpha<0.25 the helix conformation is destabilized(More)
When the association between a ligand immobilized on a membrane disk and a fluorescence-labeled analyte was monitored with a fluorescent microplate reader, the time-dependent increase in fluorescence intensity of the reaction mixture was observed. A novel assay system for the specific interaction based on this phenomenon was designated the homogeneous assay(More)
Our model has been extended for theoretical estimation of competitive condensation of counterions of different valences onto polyelectrolytes in solution. The estimations are compared with those obtained from Manning theory and with experimental data on counterion activity coefficients. The agreement with the data for sodium polystyrenesulfonate/MgCl2,(More)
Effects of divalent counterions (Mg2+, Ca2+, Sr2+, Ba2+) on the helix formation of poly(L-glutamic acid) are investigated in aqueous alcohol (MeOH, EtOH, 2PrOH, tBuOH) solutions. To observe helix formation inherent to the divalent counterions, the chlorides were added to a poly(L-glutamate) having an inert monovalent counterion, tetrabutylammonium cation.(More)
