About UV-Visible Circular dichroism at CERM/CIRMMP

View All Circular Dichroism (CD) at Instruct

UV CD is an excellent technique for studying the conformations adopted by proteins and nucleic acids in solution. Though unable to give detailed insights into the tertiary structure of a protein, UV CD can be useful in complementing other structural techniques. Visible CD is a very powerful technique to study metal protein interactions. Visible CD can resolve the individual transitions as separate bands, particularly where the CD bands are of opposite sign.
