      UV resonance Raman spectroscopy of TTR(105-115): Determination of the pKa of tyrosine 

      Pieridou, Galatia K.; Hayes, Sophia C. (2009)
      The 11-residue peptide fragment from transthyretin (TTR(105-115)) has been investigated using UV resonance Raman spectroscopy. Excitation at 239.5 nm reveals selective enhancement of scattering from two Tyr residues. The ...
