Interaction-component analysis of cosolvent effect on protein structure
Professor Nobuyuki Matubayasi, Associate Professor Kan Kim, Assistant Professor Ryosuke Ishizuka
A flexible solute molecule such as protein changes its structure in response to the surrounding environment. A scheme to change the solvent environment is addition of a cosolvent, and the denaturation of protein by urea is indeed a notable example of modifying the solute structure by (mixed) solvent...
