The effects of pH on the intrinsic fluorescence of purified human erythrocyte glucose transporter (HEGT) were studied to deduce the structure and the ligand-induced dynamics of this protein. D-Glucose increases tryptophan fluorescence of HEGT at a 320-nm peak with a concomitant reduction in a 350-nm peak, suggesting that glucose shifts a tryptophan residue… CONTINUE READING
