Comparing the binding interaction between β-lactoglobulin and flavonoids with different structure by multi-spectroscopy analysis and molecular docking.

Four kinds of flavonoids (apigenin, naringenin, kaempferol, genistein) were skillfully selected to investigate the interaction between flavonoids and β-lactoglobulin (β-LG) by multi-spectroscopy analysis and molecular docking. Hydrogenation on C2C3 double bond weakened the affinity of apigenin for β-LG and it's most obvious, followed by hydroxylation of C3… (More)
