Structural conformation of lysozyme layers at the air/water interface studied by neutron reflection

Abstract:

The adsorption of chicken egg white lysozyme at the air/water interface has been studied by specular neutron reflection. The variation of the total thickness of the lysozyme layer at the surface of water under varying solution conditions has been determined. The use of mixed H2O and D2O allowed the determination of the extent of immersion of the layer in water at all concentrations. The measured layer thickness combined with the globular dimensions of lysozyme suggests that the adsorbed lysoz...
