Abstract
The interaction of myelin basic protein (MBP) from bovine central nervous system with divalent calcium ion was studied by isothermal titration calorimetry at 27℃ in aqueous solution. The extended solvation model was used to reproduce the enthalpies of Co2+-MBP interaction over the whole Co2+ concentrations. The solvation parameters recovered from the solvation model were attributed to the structural change of MBP due to the metal ion interaction. It was found that there is a set of three identical and noninteracting binding sites for Co2+ ions. The association equilibrium constant is 0.015 μM?1. The molar enthalpy of binding is ΔH = ?14.60 kJ mol?1.
