Contrasting effects of pH on the modulation of the structural integrity of hemoglobin induced by sodium deoxycholate.


Bile salt-mediated conformational modification of hemoglobin (Hb) was examined at three different pHs i.e., 3.2, 7.4 and 9.0. The added bile salt, sodium deoxycholate (NaDC), decreases the α-helicity in Hb (α-helix: 71.3% → 61.7% in the presence of 9.6 mM NaDC, and 83.2% → 66.2% in the presence of 14 mM NaDC, at pH 7.4 and 9.0, respectively), while a… (More)
