Apoferritin characterictic pKa?

What is the pKa value for apoferritin, or where could I find out> I am trying to understand why my supervisor has decided to use NaAcetate as a buffer soln in a protein crystallizing expt. I am doing. Is the crystallizing process of apoferritin a proton releaser or opposite?

Cheers!

Iso-electric point of proteins?

I'm crystallizing apoferritin, and still don't understand what an iso-electric point is, despite reading a whole chapter of a book about it. What happens if the surrounding buffer solution is at the iso-electric point?

Cheers!
