Due to more stringent process conditions, even traditional OA flux residues have become challenging to remove, as water has a high dielectric constant and cannot easily solubilize non-ionic contamination.
To determine the optimum conditions to solubilize membrane-bound [Na.sup.+]-ATPase, basolateral plasma membranes (1 mg of protein/mL) were solubilized in a buffer containing 8 mM Hepes, 13 mM imidazol, 1mM EDTA, 20 mM Tris-HCl (pH 7.2), 25% glycerol and different amounts of either [C.sub.12][E.sub.8], octyl glycoside, Tween 20 and [C.sub.12][E.sub.9].
We tested four different detergents for their capacity to solubilize the [Na.sup.+]- and the [Na.sup.+]/[K.sup.+]-ATPases from basolateral plasma membrane.
The cooking process delaminates paper and/or plastic labels from containers, solubilizes the food waste, and shatters any glass containers.
Then, if it drips down onto the surface of the food, often it solubilizes things more than they need to be solubilized."
Whereas, the conventional system solubilizes protein (10-12%) of roasted coffee weight along with cellulose etc.
In a paragraph entitled "Useless Techniques", Sivetz states "the use of enzymes to solubilize cellulose portions of roasted coffee is impractical".
The compound comprises a material that is a desiccant adapted to absorb moisture from textiles during the drying cycle; an antistatic agent; and a material that, after absorbing moisture from the textiles during the drying cycle, solubilizes and evaporates from the water-insoluble, moisture-permeable, enclosed container upon application of heat to the container during the drying cycle The water-insoluble, moisture-permeable, enclosed container contains a sufficient amount of the compound such that the dryer product can be used for more than one drying cycle while still imparting antistatic properties to the textiles being dried so that static electricity produced during each of the more than one drying cycle is no more than 10 kilovolts.
In particular, it reportedly solubilizes hydrocarbons better than other surfactants.
We studied the influence of different concentrations of various detergents and temperatures on the fluidity of membranes, and compared these data with the ability of the detergents to solubilize mAChR.
A group of detergents that has been also reported to be able to solubilize active mAChR are zwitterionic CHAPS and CHAPSO [17, 18] and Sulfobetaine SB-12.
