Macromolecules Self-Assemble from Metastable, Supersaturated Solution into Crystals

Macromolecules Self-Assemble from Metastable, Supersaturated Solution into Crystals

The mother liquor from which a biomolecular crystal is grown will contain water, buffer molecules, native ligands and cofactors, crystallization precipitants and additives, various metal ions, and often small-molecule ligands or inhibitors. On average, about half the volume of a biomolecular crystal consists of this mother liquor, whose components form the disordered bulk solvent. [More]
