Methods for measuring nanometer scale distances between specific sites in biomolecules (proteins and nucleic acids) and their complexes are essential for describing and analyzing their structure and function. In the last decade pulse EPR techniques were proven very effective for measuring distances between two spin labels attached to a biomolecule. The most commonly used spin labels for such measurements are nitroxide stable radicals. Recently, a new family of spin labels, based on Gd(3… CONTINUE READING
