The cellular functions of lipid-transport proteins cannot can be obtained, as well as structural information re- garding the local environment of the spectroscopic be fully realized without a comprehensive knowledge of probe. However, changes in protein fluorescence upon their binding properties. In particular, it is important to identify physiologically important ligands and establish ligand binding are sometimes too small to quantitate. their binding affinities, stoichiometries and specificities. This is particularly true for L-FABP, which has no tryp- Since many lipid-binding proteins exhibit no enzymatic tophan residues. Also, some lipids lack intrinsic fluores- cence or paramagnetic properties, including many lipids activity, binding parameters provide an important quan- titative measure for comparing the 'activity' of various of physiological interest. In such cases, lipid analogues wild-type and mutant forms.
