A derivative of phenazine, dibenzo[a,c]phenazine (DBPZ), can be used as a very good hydrogen-bonding probe unlike its parent phenazine molecule. Steady-state absorption and fluorescence studies reveal that DBPZ is completely insensitive to polarity of the medium. However, DBPZ can form a hydrogen bond very efficiently in its first excited singlet state. The(More)
The steady-state and time-resolved studies of the sensitized emission of the excited-state proton transfer (ESIPT) probe 3-hydroxy-2-naphthoic acid (3HNA) when bound to bovine serum albumin (BSA) and human serum albumin (HSA) indicate that the nonradiative dipole-dipole Förster type energy transfer from Trp singlet state of proteins to the ESIPT singlet(More)
Tubulin, a heterodimeric (alphabeta) protein, the main constituent of microtubules, binds efficiently with colchicine (consisting of a trimethoxybenzene ring, a seven-member ring and methoxy tropone moiety) and its analogues, viz., demecolcine and AC [2-methoxy-5-(2',3',4'-trimethoxyphenyl)tropone]. Tubulin contains eight tryptophan (Trp) residues at A21,(More)
The phosphoprotein (P protein) of the chandipura virus (CHPV), a negative strand RNA virus, is involved in both transcription and replication of the viral life cycle. Interaction between the P protein and the viral leader (le) RNA under in vitro conditions has been previously reported for CHPV and other negative strand RNA viruses such as the rinderpest(More)
We have investigated the organization and dynamics of tryptophan residues in tetrameric, monomeric and unfolded states of soybean agglutinin (SBA) by selective chemical modification, steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence, and phosphorescence. Oxidation with N-bromosuccinimide (NBS) modifies two tryptophans (Trp 60 and Trp 132) in tetramer, four (Trp(More)
Human placental ribonuclease inhibitor (hRI) containing six tryptophan (Trp) residues located at positions 19, 261, 263, 318, 375, and 438 and its complex with RNase A have been studied using steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence (298 K) as well as low-temperature phosphorescence (77 K). Two Trp residues in wild-type hRI and also in the(More)
Three types of atropisomeric unsymmetrical diimine complexes, tetrahedral (L(R)(Φ))MX(2) (M = Zn, Cd; X = Cl, Br; R = Me, CMe(3), OH, OMe, Cl; 1a-k, type-I), tetrahedral (L(Me2)(Φ))ZnBr(2) (2, type-II) and square planar (L(OH)(ϕ))PdCl(2) (3, type-III) with different photoluminescence properties, have been reported (L(R)(Φ) =(More)
The phosphoprotein (P protein) of Chandipura virus (CHPV), a negative stranded RNA virus, is involved in both transcription and replication phases of the viral life cycle. The two Tryptophan (Trp) residues of CHPV, located at 105 and 135 respectively and two single Trp mutants W135F and W105F and a double Trp mutant W135F/W105F have been characterized by(More)
