Fluorescence and folding properties of Tyr mutant tryptophan synthase alpha-subunits from Escherichia coli.

The fluorescence of tyrosine has been used to monitor a folding process of tryptophan synthase alpha-subunit from Escherichia coli, because this protein has 7 tyrosines, but not tryptophan. Here to assess the contribution of each Tyr to fluorescence properties of this protein during folding, mutant proteins in which Tyr was replaced with Phe were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
