A Spectroscopic View of Drug and Protein Binding

Laboratory Manual Objectives.  After completing this laboratory module, you should be able to: Understand, broadly, what occurs when drugs bind to blood serum proteins. Demonstrate proper use of the commercial UV/Vis spectrometer. Describe what happens to drug binding when concentration is varied. Use basic programming to upload and view a three dimensional protein structure. Introduction The most abundant amino acids in HSA are alanine (Ala), lysine (Lys), leucine (Leu), and glutamic acid (Glu).1,2 The abundance of the amino acids is […]
