Light scattering studies were performed on bovine α-crystallin measuring the scattering intensities as a function of scattering angle, concentration, and temperature. The data yielded the molecular weight, radius of gyration, and second virial coefficient of α-crystallin at different temperatures. The second virial coefficient increased with increasing temperature. Both the enthalpy and entropy of solution of α-crystallin are positive. The Flory thetatemperature was found to be 271 K.
