Structural study of fluorescence-quenching tryptophan residues in γ-Crystallin Technical Report , April 2007

The crystallin family of proteins are the dominant protein in the eye lens. Crystallin proteins can be found in monomeric, dimeric, and oligomeric forms; and each form has varying functions. One well studied property of the monomeric form, γ-Crystallin, is that upon absorbance of UV-range radiation, the acquired energy is subsequently dissipated in a non… CONTINUE READING
