Abstract

Fluorescence spectroscopy has been widely used to obtain information on protein structure (l) as well as to study protein-ligand interaction (2). Both the intrinsic fluorescence of the aromatic amino acids and the extrinsic fluorescence of covalently or non-covalently bound labels have been used.
