Characterization of the role of side-chain interactions in the binding of ligands to apo trp repressor: pH dependence studies.


The pH dependence of the association of apo trp repressor with the series of ligands, tryptophan, tryptamine, indole propionic acid (IPA), and trans-beta-indole acrylic acid (IAA), has been studied using fluorescence titrations and isothermal titration microcalorimetry (ITC). The purpose of such a comparison of ligands and the pH dependency studies is to… (More)
