Human serum albumin at the air-water interface and its interaction with nanoparticles

Ang, Joo Chuan


The adsorption mechanism and structure of human serum albumin (fatted and defatted variants) at the air-water interface was investigated using a combination of complementary x-ray and neutron reflectometry. The studies showed that the presence of fatty acid alters the surface activity of the protein. From x-ray and neutron reflectivity measurements, human serum albumin (regardless of the presence or absence of fatty acid) showed an adsorbed structure that is inconsistent with its native...[Show more]
