Abstract

Tyrosine fluorescence was used to monitor the denaturation of a protein. The protein used as our model system was the regulatory subunit (RSU) of aspartate transcarbamoylase from E. coli. RSU is a dimer of two identical chains with one zinc ion bound per chain. It is also a typtophan-deficient protein so tyrosine flourescence was used as a probe to monitor changes during denaturation.
