(column: TSK GEL G3000SWXL [TosoHaas], buffer: 20 mM phosphate, 150 mM NaCl, pH=7.5).

a predicated MW was calculated based on protein sequence as retrieved from the ExPASy molecular biology WWW server of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB).

b Experimental accuracy (%) is calculated as an absolute value of {100*[(Average Experimental MW-predicted MW)/predicted MW]}
