Fifty different mineral samples were tested as potential heterogeneous or epitaxial nucleants for four commonly crystallized proteins. It was found, by conventional protein crystallization techniques, that for each protein there was a set of mineral substrates that promoted nucleation of crystals at lower critical levels of supersaturation than required for(More)
Preliminary plots of the abundance of inorganic compounds as a function of their crystallographic parameters disclosed sharp peaks. A plot of cubic compounds as a function of the unit-cell length yielded numerous peaks which appeared to correspond to sets of structure types. For hexagonal compounds as a function of c/a, there were two peaks at about 1.0 and(More)
