Upon mechanical stress, due to the close proximity of the compounds, a phenomenon called fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) caused the blue compound to shift its absorbed energy to the orange compound, resulting in a perceived colour change.
Among the topics are understanding the pathway to successful drug discovery, homology modeling, using aequorin for receptor hit identification and compound profiling, yeast assays, applying fluorescence resonance energy transfer techniques to establish ligand-receptor orientation, and the immuno-precipitation and phosphorylation of the receptors.
Our conceptual view of the fluorescence is similar to that of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) in which the excited state molecule (donor molecule) "sees" a nearby molecule (acceptor molecule) if the acceptor is within a few nanometers of the donor (8-11).
In a process known as fluorescence resonance energy transfer, when one protein becomes excited by light, it both emits blue light and transfers energy to the other protein, causing it to produce yellow light.
