1 With HbC, a strong retrograde solubility dependence on temperature yields a high positive enthalpy of 155 kJ mol(-1), i.e., crystallization is only possible because of the huge entropy gain of 610 J mol(-1) x K(-1), stemming from the release of up to 10 water molecules per protein intermolecular contact.
