Iso-electric point of proteins?

Post by philip041 » Wed Jan 14, 2009 4:26 pm

I'm crystallizing apoferritin, and still don't understand what an iso-electric point is, despite reading a whole chapter of a book about it. What happens if the surrounding buffer solution is at the iso-electric point?

Cheers!
