On the environment and the rotational motion of amphiphilic flavins in artificial membrane vesicles as studied by electron paramagnetic resonance spectrometry.

This paper continues the studies of vesicle-bound flavins ('anisotropic flavin chemistry'). It is possible to anchor the flavin nucleus in various modes within the lipids/water interface by means of long aliphatic chains and using different saturated lipids, thereby mimicking the specific binding of the coenzyme to the apoprotein in flavoproteins. Based on… CONTINUE READING
