Phenotyping by isoelectric focusing can detect known and unknown polymorphs, but only in cases in which the amino acid substitution leads to a change in the protein's isoelectric point.
Estimation of isoelectric point (pI) The pI for the mixture of the amino acids was estimated from the equation of the form [13]: [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] where IPm is the isoelectric point of the mixture of amino acids, IPi is the isoelectric point of the ith amino acid in the mixture and Xi is the mass or mole fraction of the ith amino acid in the mixture.
Topics include: correlations of the PZC and isoelectric points (IEP) with other physical quantities and properties, surface charging in mixed and nonaqueous solvents, surface charging at high ionic strengths, and ion-specificity in 1-1 electrolytes.
