  author={Alajos B{\'e}rczi and Gyorgy Horvath},
In order to study the molecular characteristics of an integral membrane protein, first the protein should be solubilized. Ascorbate-reducible b-type cytochromes are highly hydrophobic integral membrane proteins with six trans-membrane α-helices. A fully ascorbatereducible b-type cytochrome was easily solubilized by Triton X-100 from phase partitionpurified plasma membranes of 5-day-old etiolated bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) hooks (Trost et al. 2000). However, under the very same conditions, a… CONTINUE READING
