Investigating proteins with techniques such as NMR or neutron scattering frequently requires the partial or complete substitution of D₂O for H₂O as a solvent, often tacitly assuming that such a solvent substitution does not significantly alter the properties of the protein. Here, we report a systematic investigation of the solvent isotope effect on the phase diagram of the lens protein γB-crystallin in aqueous solution as a model system exhibiting liquid-liquid phase separation. We demonstrate...[Show more]
