Abstract : Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), serum albumin and other proteins were chromatographed on columns of Sepharose 4B at varied ionic strengths of the eluting buffers, pH 8.4. AChE and serum albumin were progressively excluded from the gel as the ionic strength was lowered, whereas neutral or basic proteins showed no response or were adsorbed to the column. For the two acidic proteins (AChE and albumin) a hyperbolic relationship between K(av) and ionic strength was found, and two empirical constants were calculated to define the relationship. It was concluded that the exclusion effects were due to the repulsion between the anionic proteins and anionic groups on the gel at low salt concentration. (Modified author abstract)
