Lysozyme: Zeta-Potential Measurements by Electrophoretic Light Scattering

Proteins have diverse roles in the body, including catalysts, membrane receptors and channels, and molecular transporters within a cell or from one organ to another. They play a crucial role in the treatment of many diseases, for which they are usually administered parenterally (e.g., intravenously), where it is very important to monitor protein solution stability, in order to optimize formulations.

In this application note, electrophoretic light scattering (ELS) is used to characterize the zeta potential of a common protein, lysozyme, by using the Litesizer™500.
