Re: 2.5 M glycine crystallized

... out of aqueous solution, especially at reduced temperatures. Apparently glycine is such a molecule. Storage at room temperature might prevent the crystallization, but you might also get microbial growth if there are any critters in there. Try gently warming the bottle and see if the crystals go ...

Re: Borax Crystals

... do crystals form. The physics of crystal formation is essentially the same, whether you're talking about borax crystals in a classroom, or mineral crystallization in molten rock, or stalagmite/stalagtite formation in caves, or protein crystallization in the laboratory. There are three steps. Step ...

Crystallization of small RNA Hairpin Structures

... of the sequence from their own chain, preventing the presentation of the hairpin in any crystals that form. Am I overlooking anything from the crystallization process of RNA, or does anyone else have any ideas? ex. of GUAA Tetraloop is attached

Re: X Ray crystallography & transmembrane proteins

The crystallization of membrane proteins in toto is one of the “holy grails” of crystallography. There is no general way to do it and of the few cases that have succeeded, two (rhodopsin and F1-ATPase) won Nobel Prizes. Transmembrane ...

Re: Can organisms feed with vibrations or thermal infrared?

I was thinking about 2nd law of thermodynamics and crystallization. During this process we get higher ordering (lower entropy), but the cost is energy difference between free and bind molecule - this energy is usually just dispersed around, increasing ...
