Depending on solution conditions, beta-lactoglobulin can exist in one of its six pH-dependent structural states. We have characterized the acid and basic-induced conformational transitions between these structural states over the pH range of pH 1 to pH 13. To this end, we have employed high-precision ultrasonic and densimetric measurements coupled with… CONTINUE READING
