RE: pH oligomerization

David Bienvenue
The change in pH changes the charge of the amino acids involved in the formation of multimers.  You could guess, based on the pH range, what amino acids may be involved.  Histidine may be one suspect, but pKas can vary a bit depending on the local environment.  Assume that the change in pH causes charges to flip, causing repulsive or attractive interactions to occur.
