Absorption spectra indicate conformational alteration of myoglobin adsorbed on polydimethylsiloxane.

Abstract

To assess the effects of adsorption on protein structure, ultraviolet optical absorption spectra of myoglobin (Mb) bound to polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) were measured. A flow cell, which enabled adsorption under controlled hydrodynamic conditions, was used in conjunction with a conventional spectrophotometer to obtain the spectra. Adsorption to PDMS reduced… (More)
