Number of equivalents

Recommended Posts

Hello, I read that the concentration of proteins in the blood is 14 meq/L (milli equivalents per liter), but what does an equivalent of protein correspond to? I know that, for exemple, an equivalent of a strong acid is the quantity of that acid that supplies one mole of hydrogen ions, but what about proteins? I'm posting this in the organic chemistry section because we are talking about biomolecules. I hope it's the right section.

Thanks in advance!
