Paper Abstract

The dynamical behavior of large molecules can be studied by measuring the fluorescence of fluorophores bound to the molecule. Time-resolved fluorescence, using frequency-domain technique, provides a unique tool for the analysis of the emission from complex systems. Time resolution of few picoseconds is attainable using state-of-the-art commercial phase and modulation fluorometers. The development of these high-resolution instruments allowed for a new understanding of the internal motions of proteins and of molecules embedded in natural and synthetic membranes.
