Abstract

We have succeeded in protein crystallization by electrically-driven mono-dispersed micro-bubble knife. The dispensed directional micro-bubbles whose air-liquid interface tends to combine the ambient molecules due to by their stiction force on the surface of micro-bubbles. These characteristics enable to agglomerate the protein molecule which brings to successful protein crystallization in the solution with low concentration. The rate of protein crystal-nucleation by electrically-driven mono-dispersed micro-bubble was much higher than that of control condition. It was confirmed that induction force of protein crystallization by electrically-driven mono-dispersed micro-bubble increased with the amplification of input power of electrical circuit of electrically-induced micro-bubble knife.
