Protein dynamics from single-molecule fluorescence intensity correlation functions


Gopich, I V; Nettels, D; Schuler, B; Szabo, A (2009). Protein dynamics from single-molecule fluorescence intensity correlation functions. Journal of Chemical Physics, 131(9):095102.

Abstract

Fluorescence intensity correlation functions contain information about photophysical and conformational dynamics. We propose and implement a simple procedure to analyze such functions measured in the presence of resonance energy transfer. When there is a separation of time scales and the conformational dynamics is modeled as diffusion in the potential of mean force along the interdye distance, we obtain an analytic expression for the conformational correlation time. This can be used to find the diffusion coefficient describing conformational fluctuations given the photon count rate and equilibrium distribution.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
