Colloidal graphenes as heterogeneous additives to enhance protein crystal yield

Author affiliations

Abstract

In the structural analysis of proteins via X-ray diffraction, a rate-limiting step is in favourable nucleation, a problematic obstacle in successful generation of protein crystals. Here graphene and graphene oxide were applied to protein crystallisation trials, offering improvements in crystalline output and nucleation.
