Thermoprecipitation of lysozyme from egg white using copolymers of N-isopropylacrylamide and acidic monomers

Thermoprecipitation of lysozyme from egg white was demonstrated using copolymers of N-isopropylacrylamide with acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, 2-acryloylamido-2-methylpropane-sulfonic acid and itaconic acid, respectively

Scholarcy highlights

  • Thermoprecipitation of lysozyme from egg white was demonstrated using copolymers of N-isopropylacrylamide with acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, 2-acryloylamido-2-methylpropane-sulfonic acid and itaconic acid, respectively
  • More than 90% lysozyme activity was recovered from egg white
  • Thermoprecipitation using these copolymers, which enables very high recovery of lysozyme from egg white, would be advantageous over pH sensitive polymers, which generally exhibit lower recovery
