ABSTRACT

This work expands the knowledge of the use of chemometric response surface methodology (RSM) in optimizing conditions for competitive binding partial filling ACE (PFACE). Specifically, RSM in the form of a Box-Behnken design was implemented in flow-through PFACE (FTPFACE) to effectively predict the significance of injection time, voltage, and neutral ligand (neutral arylsulfonamide) concentration, [L(o)], on protein-neutral ligand binding. Statistical analysis results were used to create a model for response surface prediction via contour and surface plots at a given maximum response (DeltaRMTR) to reach a targeted K(b) = 2.50 x 10(6) M(-1). The adequacy of the model was then validated by experimental runs at the optimal predicted solution (injection time = 2.3 min, voltage = 11.6 kV, [L(o)] = 1.4 microM). The achieved results greatly extend the usefulness of chemometrics in ACE and provide a valuable statistical tool for the study of other receptor-ligand combinations.
