Applications of Fluorescent Probes for Monitoring Energy-Linked Phenomena in Biomembranes and Proteoliposomes
Our main research is focussed on the resolution of bioenergy-transducing mechanisms in photosynthetic and respiratory membranes and simplified or reconstituted model membranes derived therefrom. Within this framework we are using several types of commercially available or home-synthesized fluorescent probes for monitoring dynamic structural and functional phenomena related to energy-transducing reactions. We will discuss the following examples of such probes
