AB - © 2019 Omnipress - All rights reserved. Statement of Purpose: Mositure can greatly affect the structure, stability, folding and activity of protein molecules. The interactions of the sorbed moisture with the proteins can make them susceptible to undergo physico-chemical changes under humid conditions. These protein-water interactions get influenced by the number of polar and non-polar groups and their arrangement along the protein molecule. Water also plays an important role in hydrogen bonded networks and various hydrophilic and hydrophobic interactions. Although an important contributor for protein functionality, these water–protein interactions are still far from being fully understood. Surface energy could be employed as a potential descriptor for investigating these interactions.
