Abstract

The interest in analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) to analyze protein structural parameters and interactions has increased in the past decades as a result of several developments on new generation instrumentation and data analysis tools. In this article, we review AUC principles and applications to study proteins, emphasizing molecular targets of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Keywords: Analytical ultracentrifugation, protein folding, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, protein structure-function, anti-tuberculosis agents, high centrifugal force, hydrodynamic parameters, sedimentation, colloids, macromolecules
