Thioamide quenching of intrinsic protein fluorescence

Author affiliations

Abstract

Thioamides quench tryptophan and tyrosine fluorescence in a distance-dependent manner and thus can be used to monitor the binding of thioamide-containing peptides to proteins. Since thioamide analogs of the natural amino acids can be synthetically incorporated into peptides, they can function as minimally-perturbing probes of protein/peptide interactions.
