Investigation by photochemically-induced dynamic nuclear polarization and nuclear Overhauser enhancement 1H-NMR of the interaction between beta-endorphin and phospholipid micelles.
The photochemically-induced dynamic nuclear polarization technique has been used to investigate the access of a photoexcited flavin dye to tyrosyl and histidyl residues in [Met]enkephalin and human and camel beta-endorphins, both alone and in the presence of n-dodecylphosphorylcholine micelles. The results indicate that the mode of binding of Tyr-1, but not of residue 27, is similar in the two endorphins and differs from that of Tyr-1 in [Met]enkephalin. In human beta-endorphin, accessibility...Expand abstract
