Encapsulation of Ferricytochrome c into the Nanoparticle Made from a Natural Polysaccharide : Schizophyllan
A novel protein/polysaccharide complexation was found when unfolded ferricytochrome <I>c</I> (Cyt-<I>c</I>) was mixed with denatured schizophyllan (SPG) and the renaturation of both protein and polysaccharide was carried out simultaneously. Upon the complexation, the Q band was split, indicating that ferric Cyt-<I>c</I> was converted into the ferrous state. The changes in circular dichroism and fluorescence from tryptophan showed that the entire protein conformation was drastically deformed.
