globular soluble protein


a: Globular soluble protein ~
b: an organic crystal

What: "The "surface" is that part of a folded protein that is in contact with the solvent or inaccessible to the solvent solely because of the granular nature of water. The "interior" is that part of a folded protein that is inaccessible to solvent for any other reason. A folded globular soluble protein is like an organic crystal, the interior being as densely packed as in a crystal lattice and the exterior being in contact with the solvent, water."
