Abstract

The conformational change of hen egg-white lysozyme (EC 3.2.1.17) induced by the interaction with tri-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine were investigated by steady state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. To identify more clearly the conformation of hen egg-white lysozyme interacting with the ligand, the fluorescence decay kinetics of the lysozyme and its complex with the ligand were precisely measured at their full spectral regions. The spectral analysis based on the time-resolved studies showed that the binding of the ligand affected not only the Trp62 directly linked to the ligand but its influence was extended to the vicinity of Trp108 and further to the hydrophobic matrix box region. Near the binding site, the intramolecular distance between Trp108 and Glu35 was expanded or contracted depending on the pH of the buffer solution. On the other hand, the interaction of Trp28 and/or Trp111 with their surroundings was reduced by restriction of fluctuational motions at the hydrophobic matrix box region.
