  • Previously published osmotic pressure data on hemoglobin and bovine serum albumin were used to determine the osmotically unresponsive solvent volume per unit dry mass of protein. A model is presented that accounts for the osmotic pressure of globular proteins based on a surface-associated osmotically unresponsive solvent volume. The model also accounts for changes in the osmotically unresponsive solvent volume owing to changes in pH, cosolute salt concentration, protein conformation, and… CONTINUE READING
