Nano DSC and DSC Auto - 2

Microcalorimetry Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) are powerful analytical techniques for in-depth characterization of molecular binding events and structural stability. Thermodynamic binding signatures not only reveal the strength of a binding event, but the specific or nonspecific driving forces involved. Structural stability profiles from DSC reveal strengths and weaknesses in higher order structure and define the behavior of individual domains and their interactions. The TA Instruments Affinity ITC, Nano ITC and Nano DSC provide the...

Molar Heat Capacity How much Protein is Required for a DSC Scan? Determining the thermodynamic parameters of a protein by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) using the Nano DSC requires about the same amount of protein as surface plasmon resonance or fluorescence studies. Because of the Nano DSC’s extreme sensitivity and baseline reproducibility, and the sample cell’s small volume (300 µL), a complete, interpretable, accurate scan can be obtained on essentially any protein of interest. The sensitivity and accuracy of the Nano DSC is demonstrated by this data. Hen egg white lysozyme (in...

Nano DSC and DSC Auto - 9

Analyzing the stability of a protein in dilute solution involves determining changes in the partial molar heat capacity of the protein at constant pressure (∆Cp). The contribution of the protein to the calorimetrically measured heat capacity (its partial Cp) is determined Heat Flow/µW Characterization of Protein Stability by subtracting a scan of a buffer blank from the sample data prior to analysis. Heating the protein sample initially produces a slightly increasing baseline but as heating progresses, baseline scans heat is absorbed by the protein and causes it to thermally unfold over a...

Nano DSC and DSC Auto - 10

Investigation of Protein-Ligand Binding DSC is a valuable tool for studying binding between a biological macromolecule and a ligand such as another biopolymer or a drug. Unlike ITC, DSC allows the thermodynamics that drive binding to be correlated with conformational changes in the macromolecule caused by the binding reaction. DSC is particularly useful for characterizing very tight or slow binding interactions. DSC also allows characterization of binding reactions that are incompatible with the organic solvent requirements of some ITC experiments (i.e., where ligand solubility for an ITC...
