The fluorescence of a membrane-bound tryptophan derivative (tryptophan octyl ester, TOE) has been examined as a model for tryptophan fluorescence from proteins in membrane environments. The depth-dependent fluorescence quenching of TOE by brominated lipids was found to proceed via a dynamic mechanism with vertical fluctuations playing a central role in the… CONTINUE READING
