Nuclear protein purification

it must be 2/5 of final volume, thus 2/3 of your original volume. E.g. you have 1 liter in the beginning, you add 0.66 l of 5M NaCl -> the final volume is 1.66 l and cV = cV, i.e. 0.66l . 5M = 1.66l . xM, how much is x?

Re: Measure of Cysteine concentration

... are typically M^-1 cm^-1; in that case, a 1cm cell path length cancels out the cm^-1 unit and you'll end up with a concentration in moles/liter. Watch the units on your extinction coefficient, sometimes they are different (you could, for instance, have an extinction coefficient calibrated ...

ECF volume change after exercise

Imagine you have 10 g of sodium in 1 liter of water, OK? That means that the level of sodium is 10 g/l. Now, you get rid of 200 ml of water, but no sodium. Now you have 10 g in 800 ml, i.e. 12,5 g/l. Is the concentration the same?
