The dilute fluid phase of model globular proteins is studied. The model possesses a fluid-fluid transition buried within the fluid-crystal coexistence region, as do some globular proteins. If this fluid-fluid transition is not buried deep inside the fluid-crystal coexistence region the crystalline phase does not nucleate within the dilute fluid. We link this lack of nucleation of the crystal to the interactions in our model and speculate that similar interactions between globular proteins are… Expand

Interactions and phase transitions in protein solutions
Understanding interactions and phase transitions in protein solutions is essential in order to develop systematic protein crystallisation strategies. Recent studies show that proteins nearExpand

TLDR
There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality. Expand
