We present a study of the structural evolution of protein aggregates formed in solutions of a globular protein, β-lactoglobulin (BLG), in the presence of YCl3. These aggregates are often observed before crystallization starts and they are metastable with respect to the crystalline phase. Here we focus on the characterization of the hierarchical structure of… CONTINUE READING
