Site-directed spin-labeling and electron paramagnetic resonance are powerful tools for studying structure and conformational dynamics of proteins, especially in membranes. The position of the spin label is used as an indicator of the position of the site to which it is attached. The interpretation of these experiments is based on the assumptions that the spin label does not affect the peptide configuration and that it has a fixed orientation and distance with respect to the protein backbone… CONTINUE READING
