Depth-dependent fluorescence quenching in membranes is playing an increasingly important role in the determination of the low resolution structure of membrane proteins. This paper presents a graphical way of visualizing membrane quenching caused by lipid-attached bromines or spin labels with the help of a depth-dependent fluorescence quenching profile. Two methods are presently available to extract information on membrane penetration from quenching: the parallax method (PM; ) and distribution… CONTINUE READING
