Abstract

Structure of carbohydrate residues are in general studied via NMR. In the present study, we are describing structural and dynamical studies of carbohydrates bound to α1-acid glycoprotein using fluorescence spectroscopy as a tool. Also, we applied fluorescence spectroscopy to show importance of a specific fucose in the interaction and stability of two proteins.
