1 ON (dis)ORDERED AGGREGATION OF PROTEINS Adam Gadomski & Jacek Siódmiak Institute of Mathematics and Physics University of Technology and Agriculture Bydgoszcz, Poland Workshop on Structure and Function of Biomolecules May , 2004, Będlewo near Poznań, Poland

2 OBJECTIVE TO PROPOSE A CONCEPTUAL AND THEORETICAL STRATEGY, BASED ON THE GROWTH RULE AND GROWTH MECHANISM, POSSIBLY OF USEFULNESS FOR QUALITY AND MANUFACTURE TESTS IN PROTEIN-BASED TECHNOLOGY AND PROTEIN-CLUSTER DESIGN

3 Matter aggregation models, leading to (poly)crystallization in complex polyelectrolytic environments: (A) aggregation on a single seed in a diluted solution, (B) agglomeration on many nuclei in a more condensed solution

4 GENERAL RULE BASED ON THE GROWTH RATE - mechanism – dependent continuous function - systems main variables - control parameters - time (desirable behavior in time: )

5 ONE-NUCLEUS BASED SCENARIO GENERAL SCHEME FOR THE MASS CONSERVATION LAW - volume - surface - time - internal concentration (density) - external concentration - position vector

7 EMPHASIS PUT ON A CLUSTER – CLUSTER MECHANISM: geometrical parameter (fractal dimension) interaction (solution) parameter of Flory-Huggins type - initial cluster mass - time- and size- dependent diffusion coefficient - characteristic time constant

8 PIVOTAL ROLE OF THE DOUBLE LAYER (DL): Cl - ion DOUBLE LAYER surface of the growing crystal Na + ion water dipole Lysozyme protein random walk

9 deterministic: stochastic (an example): an (un)correlated noise Frenkel-like macroion velocity supersaturation parameter Growth rates for the DL-controlled on-one-nucleus-based aggregation model

10 MANY-NUCLEI BASED SCENARIO GRAIN (CLUSTER)-MERGING MECHANISM

11 RESULTING 2D-MICROSTRUCTURE: VORONOI-like MOSAIC FOR AGGREGATION INITIAL STRUCTUREFINAL STRUCTURE

12 RESULTING FORMULA FOR VOLUME-PRESERVING d-DIMENSIONAL MATTER AGGREGATION time derivative of the specific volume (inverse of the polycrystal density) hypersurface inverse term adjusting time- dependent kinetic prefactor responsible for spherulitic growth

13 ADDITIONAL FORMULA EXPLAINING THE MECHANISM (to be inserted in continuity equation) - hypervolume of a single crystallite - independent parameters drift termdiffusion term surface - to - volume characteristic exponent scaling: holds !

14 AFTER SOLVING THE STATISTICAL PROBLEM is obtained USEFUL PHYSICAL QUANTITIES: TAKEN USUALLY FOR THE d-DEPENDENT MODELING where

15 THERE ARE PARAMETER RANGES WHICH SUPPORT THE AGGREGATION AS A RATE-LIMITING STEP, MAKING THE PROCESS KINETICALLY SMOOTH, THUS ENABLING THE CONSTANT CRYSTALLIZATION SPEED TO BE EFFECTIVE (AGGREGATION AS A BENEFACTOR) OUTSIDE THE RANGES MENTIONED ABOVE AGGREGATION SPOILS THE CRYSTALLIZATION OF INTEREST (see lecture by A.Gadomski) CONCLUSION
