The study of the aggregation processes in presenceof metal ions is an essential step for understanding thekey role of metals in protein-protein and protein-solventinteractions. Indeed, the presence of metal ions canradically change the main features of the standarddenaturation/aggregation processes and such effectsresult to be strongly dependent on the kind of metaland on its concentration. Metal ions have an activerole in thermal aggregation and cold set gelationprocesses. These processes are intrinsically different, butboth are based on the proteins ability to form aggregates.
