Luminescence Resonance Energy Transfer to Study Conformational Changes in Membrane Proteins Expressed in Mammalian Cells Drew M. Dolino1, Swarna S. Ramaswamy1, Vasanthi Jayaraman1 1Center for Membrane Biology, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston We describe here an improved Luminescence Resonance Energy Transfer (LRET) method where we introduce a protease cleavage site between the donor and acceptor fluorophore sites. This modification allows us to obtain specific LRET signals arising from membrane proteins of interest, allowing for the study of membrane proteins without protein purification.
