Abstract

The effect of the properties of a protein on its adsorption to a metal surface in the presence of external electric potential was investigated. Protein adsorption processes at different surface potentials were measured for fifteen types of proteins using an in-situ ellipsometry. The tested proteins were classified into three groups, based on the amount of protein that was adsorbed as a function of the surface potential: In First group of proteins, an increasing trend for the amount adsorbed with a more positive surface potential was found; The amount adsorbed of α-chymotrypsinogen A and ribonuclease A (Second group) were roughly constant and independent of the applied surface electric potentials; In Third group, the amount adsorbed decreased with increasing surface potential. This protein classification was correlated with the isoelectric points of the proteins (First group: ≤9.3; Second group: 9.3–10; Third group: >10). Increasing the pH positively and negatively shifted the surface potentials, allowing ß-lactoglobulin (First group) and lysozyme (Third) to become adsorbed, respectively. The surface potential range for protein adsorption was also markedly shifted depending on the metal substrate type. These findings were interpreted based on the electrostatic interactions among the protein, surface hydroxyl groups, and the applied external electric field.
