Unfolding/refolding of a plasma protein, human serum albumin (HSA), is studied using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and single molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (sm-FRET). Addition of cholesterol causes unfolding of HSA resulting in an increase in the hydrodynamic diameter (dH = 2rH) from 76 Å in the native state to 120 Å upon(More)
Fluorescence dynamics in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of a live non-cancer lung cell (WI38) and a lung cancer cell (A549) are studied by using time-resolved confocal microscopy. To selectively study the organelle, ER, we have used an ER-Tracker dye. From the emission maximum (λmaxem) of the ER-Tracker dye, polarity (i.e. dielectric constant, ϵ) in the ER(More)
Effect of ethanol on the size and structure of a protein cytochrome C (Cyt C) is investigated using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. For FCS studies, Cyt C is covalently labeled with a fluorescent probe, alexa 488. FCS studies indicate that on addition of ethanol, the size of the protein varies(More)
Effect of gold nanoclusters (Au-NCs) on the circular dichroism (CD) spectra and enzymatic activity of α-chymotrypsin (ChT) (towards hydrolysis of a substrate, N-succinyl-l-phenylalanine p-nitroanilide) are studied. The CD spectra indicate that on binding to Au-NC, ChT is completely unfolded, resulting in nearly zero ellipticity. α-chymotrypsin (ChT) coated(More)
