Internal stark effect measurement of the electric field at the amino terminus of an alpha helix.

Abstract

The strengths of electrostatic interactions in biological molecules are difficult to calculate or predict because they occur in complicated, inhomogeneous environments. The electric field at the amino terminus of an alpha helix in water has been determined by measuring the shift in the absorption band for a covalently attached, neutral probe molecule with… (More)
