Partition Chromatography

Column chromatographic separations depend on the relative affinity of different proteins for a given stationary phase and for the mobile phase. Association between each protein and the matrix is weak and transient. Proteins that interact more strongly with the stationary phase are retained longer. The length of time that a protein is associated with the stationary phase is a function of the composition of both the stationary and mobile phases. Optimal separation of the protein of interest from other proteins thus can be achieved by careful manipulation of the composition of the two phases.

Diabetes 2

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
