The activation of kinase by neutral detergents has been examined. Of those detergents tested, only those with short chain and unsaturated chain hydrophobes were successful activators at 25 degrees. In addition to these structural requirements, a dependence upon hydrophilic-lipophilic balance number was observed when mixing hydrophobic and hydrophilic… CONTINUE READING
