Deuteroporphyrin-albumin binding equilibrium. The effects of porphyrin self-aggregation studied for the human and the bovine proteins.

Abstract

The binding equilibrium of deuteroporphyrin IX to human serum albumin and to bovine serum albumin was studied, by monitoring protein-induced changes in the porphyrin fluorescence and taking into consideration the self-aggregation of the porphyrin. To have control over the latter, the range of porphyrin concentrations was chosen to maker dimers (non-covalent… (More)
