Absence of these leader sequences results in the inability of the protein to traverse the RER membrane, resulting in ultimate intracellular degradation of the protein. Thus, these leader sequences are of vital importance to cellular protein function in general. The regulation of transmembrane transport of newly-synthesized proteins is delicate. It has been shown in in vitro systems that newly synthesized proteins that are secreted across reticulocyte membranes do not undergo leader sequence cleavage.

Physiological Structure and Function of Proteins 31 where Z/is the valence of the ith ion. We can expand the exponential term in a Taylor series as follows: xIr-EniZie-ZniZie(eZiU/Rr) (27) 'l-(ZniZie/2)(ZieU/RT)2-1 - ... , the first sum on the fight of Eq. 27 is 0). ~ -2hi Z2 e 2 U / R T (28) This charge distribution must satisfy the Poisson charge distribution equation, V2 U = - 4 7 r ~ / D (29) where Vzu is the second derivative of the potential with respect to the sum of the coordinates of the system, W is the charge distribution, and D is the dielectric constant of the medium, water.

Protein Charge and Electrophoresis Different proteins have different net charges as discussed above, ff these proteins are placed in an electric field, positively 32 SECTION I Biophysical Chemistry, Metabolism, Second Messengers, and Ultrastructure charged proteins migrate towards the negatively charged pole, the cathode, while negatively charged proteins migrate to the positively charged pole, the anode. If a protein is present at a pH equal to its isoelectric point, it will generally not move toward either pole.
