Abstract

This work was designed to study the interaction between 5-Methyluridine and human serum albumin (HSA) under simulative physiological conditions using fluorescence spectroscopy in combination with molecular modeling technique for the first time. Static quenching was suggested by the fluorescence measurement. The binding constants (K) were calculated according to the relevant fluorescence data at different conditions including temperature. Thermodynamic parameter, different conditions including temperature to determine enthalpy change and entropy change, indicating the hydrophobic force played a major role in the binding interaction between 5-Methyluridine and HSA. The experimental result was in correspondence with molecular modeling theory.
