Coacervation of soluble tropoelastin molecules is characterized by thermodynamically reversible association as temperature is increased under appropriately juxtaposed ionic conditions, protein concentration and pH. Coacervation plays a critical role in the assembly of these elastin precursors in elastic fiber formation. To examine the effect of physiological parameters on the ability of tropoelastin molecules to associate, solutions of recombinant human tropoelastin were monitored… CONTINUE READING
