The interaction of bovine white matter proteolipid apoproteins with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) was studied. Equilibrium dialysis binding measurements show that the apoprotein binds approximately 1.5 gm SDS per gram protein at high ionic strength (gamma/2 = 0.17). At low ionic strength (gamma/2 = 0.01) the protein binds only 0.90 gm per gram protein. The Stokes radius of the proteolipid protein is 40 A. Based on the circular dichroism spectrum, the apoprotein contains less than 20% alpha… CONTINUE READING
