If U(x) has a sharp maximum at x = 0, we can represent it with a symmetric function around the point of the maximum. As shown below, in many cases |d2U/dx2| < a, and this justifies the assumption of a sharp maximum. We use only the first two members of the Taylor series: U(x) = Umax – 1/2|d2U/dx2|x2. The minus sign stems from d2U/dx2 < 0 at the maximum. Then, the integral δ 2 ∂ (U/kBT) π ∂x2 exp[U(x)/kBT]dx ≅ exp kBT 0 –1/2 2 Umax (20) x= 0 The approximate equality above is based on δ >> [1/2|d2U/dx2|]–1/2, the halfwidth of the Gaussian function in Eq.
From ref. 6 nm. (From ref. ) (C) Real-space image in which each molecule is replaced by average of all molecules in frame; processed with SEMPER Software package (N. Braun, S. Weinkauf, personal communication). (D) Ribbon presentation of X-ray structure of apoferritin molecule viewed along (111) direction. Images of molecules in C appear to have similar triangular features. The second type of AFM data consisted of images on the mesoscopic length scales from several tens of nanometers to several micrometers, as in many previous AFM studies of crystallization from solution (13–24).
Evidence for diffusion-limited kinetics in other solution crystallization systems can be found in experiments on growth of protein crystals in gels, in which the protein diffusivity is significantly lower than in a “free” solution. 5 to 3 times lower than the equivalent value in free solutions (90). This suggests that the kinetic coefficient of growth is correlated to the diffusivity. 5 times (91). This is only possible if the kinetic coefficient in gels is lower, supporting the correlation between β and D and contradicting characteristic no.
