Skin biopsies showed that the fresolimumab-induced rapid decline in mRSS was accompanied by a sharp drop in skin biomarkers of TGF-beta activity, including expression of the genes thrombospondin-1, cartilage oligomeric protein, and connective tissue growth factor.
The former is generally an Oligomeric protein, the later a monomeric iron-sulfur flavoproein[11].
In particular, the emission characteristics of tryptophan residues in proteins may provide a convenient mechanism with which to investigate changes in the conformation/structure of proteins that result from a variety of factors, such as substrate/ligand binding, association/dissociation of subunits in oligomeric proteins, and unfolding [21].
