Adsorption of alpha-chymotrypsin onto mica in laminar flow conditions. Adsorption kinetic constant as a function of tris buffer concentration at pH 8.6.


We examined the adsorption kinetics of alpha-chymotrypsin (pH 8.6, 10(-2) to 0.5 M Tris buffer) on muscovite mica in conditions of laminar flow through a slit. The range of buffer concentrations is between two limits: (i) no adsorption in 1 M Tris and (ii) no desorption in 10(-3) M Tris. Studying the dependence of adsorption kinetics on the wall shear rate… (More)
