    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Aggregation of globular proteins into fibrils seems to be a generic form of aggregation. However, the exact mechanism of fibril formation is still unclear. One of the questions is whether the aggregation is an enthalpy- or an entropy-driven process. We measured the critical aggregation concentration versus temperature for the fibril formation of ß-lg at pH 2 and used this data to calculate the thermodynamic parameters for the aggregation process. Keywords: fibrillar aggregation, CAC, binding energy, entropy
