Fluorescence spectroscopy of osthole binding to human serum albumin.


PMID 29403817

Abstract

The interaction of human serum albumin (HSA) with osthole was investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy. Osthole can quench the fluorescence of HSA and the quenching mechanism is a static process. The binding site number n and apparent binding constant K were measured at different temperatures. The thermodynamic parameters ΔH0, ΔG0 and ΔS0 were calculated at different temperatures. The results indicated that electrostatic forces played a major role in the interaction of osthole with HSA. Results of osthole synchronous fluorescence and UV absorption spectra showed that the microenvironment and conformation of HSA were changed.
