Protein destabilisation in ionic liquids: the role of preferential interactions in denaturation.

Abstract

The preferential binding of anions and cations in aqueous solutions of the ionic liquids (ILs) 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium ([C4mim](+)) and 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium ([C2mim](+)) chloride and dicyanamide (dca(-)) with the small alpha-helical protein Im7 was investigated using a combination of differential scanning calorimetry, NMR spectroscopy and… (More)
