The interaction between membrane proteins and their (protein) ligands is conventionally investigated by nonequilibrium methods such as co-sedimentation or pull-down assays. Surface Plasmon Resonance can be used to monitor such binding events in real-time using isolated membranes immobilized to a surface providing insights in the kinetics of binding under equilibrium conditions. This application provides a fast, automated way to detect interacting species and to determine the kinetics and affinity (K d) of the interaction.
