Direct Measurements of the Crowding Effect in Proteins by Means of Raman Optical Activity.

The effect of crowding interactions on the structure of dephosphorylated α-casein was studied with Raman optical activity (ROA). It was found that ROA is sensitive to the structural changes in the protein, induced by the presence of crowding agents. This effect depends on the employed crowding agent and its concentration.
