Value 63.4 µm^2/sec Range: Table - link µm^2/sec
Organism Legume Canavalia spp.
Reference Squire PG, Himmel ME. Hydrodynamics and protein hydration. Arch Biochem Biophys. 1979 Aug196(1):165-77. p.167 table 1PubMed ID507801
Method Translational diffusion coefficient at 20degC in water, extrapolated to zero protein concentration. Calculated from sedimentation equilibrium data found in McKenzie et al. (62).
Comments P.168 left column 4th paragraph: "The mean value for the 21 proteins (2-22) in Table I, is 0.53 g H2O/g protein, but the most remarkable observation is the extreme diversity of values calculated from hydrodynamic data of high quality on proteins of known dimensions."
