Whaley, Kevin J and Sampatha, DS and Balaram, P (1984) Optically active gossypol as a circular dichroism probe of interactions with serum albumins. In: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, 801 (1). pp. 127-130.
The (+)-enantiomer of the polyphenolic binaphthyl gossypol, has been shown to be a useful CD probe of interactions with human and bovine serum albumin. (+)-Gossypol binds to albumin with same affinity as recemic (±)-gossypol, as shown by fluorescence quenching, and also displaces bilirubin from its albumin binding site. The CD characteristics of bound gossypol are different in the case of the two proteins.
