Abstract

A method for calculating the number of urea and water molecules bound to proteins in 8 M urea solution in acidic pH is presented. The preferential interaction parameter of solvent components with proteins can be obtained by a proper combination of the calculated number of urea and water molecules bound to the protein. This in turn can give accurate values of the apparent partial specific volumes of proteins in 8 M urea solution. The method demands only a knowledge of the amino acid composition of the protein.
