Method (Primary source): The adiabatic compressibility of 14 globular proteins in water was determined at 25°C by sound velocity measurements with a "sing around pulse method". From the obtained adiabatic compressibility data, the isothermal compressibility of six proteins was estimated by using the thermal expansion coefficient and the heat capacity data for the proteins.
