To elucidate the structure of denatured proteins, we measured the vacuum-ultraviolet circular dichroism (VUVCD) spectra from 260 to 172 nm of three proteins (metmyoglobin, staphylococcal nuclease, and thioredoxin) in the native and the acid-, cold-, and heat-denatured states, using a synchrotron-radiation VUVCD spectrophotometer. The circular dichroism(More)
To elucidate the structural characteristics of alcohol-denatured proteins, we measured the vacuum-ultraviolet circular dichroism (VUVCD) spectra of six proteins-myoglobin, human serum albumin, α-lactalbumin, thioredoxin, β-lactoglobulin, and α-chymotrypsinogen A-down to 170 nm in trifluoroethanol solutions (TFE: 0-50%) and down to 175 nm in methanol(More)
