Small molecule binding by SPR

From OpenWetWare

Jump to: navigation, search

Drug-like small organic molecules often do not dissolve well in water. Small concentration (<10%) of DMSO is used then to improve drug solubility for SPR analysis. A common technique is to add DMSO solution of drug to the aqueous buffer [1].

Dielectric properties of DMSO and water are significantly different. As a result, even when the test solution contains no analyte there can be large offset in RU between the reference and test cells. Karlsson et al [1] have suggested a calibration protocol that eliminates this offset.
