I believe this has come up before. Anyways, there is this one:

S. J. Compton, Clive G. Jones (1985):
Mechanisms of Dye Response and Interference in the Bradford Protein Assay.
Anal. Biochem. 151, 369-374.

I think there is a paper in the Meth. Enz. volume about protein purification
(edited by Murray P. Deutscher, don't recall the number) about the mechanism
of CBB binding, too.
