Conformational Changes in Polypeptides and Proteins Brought About by Interactions with Lipids
One important feature of biopolymers belonging to different classes such as proteins, nucleic acids, and polysaccarides is the helical structure. The recognition, quantitative determination and monitoring of the changes of such structures is of great importance in understanding the relationships between structure and function of biological macromolecules.
