I got some advice a while ago from DK on storage of protein:DNA
complexes.  I now have some spectroscopic data of DNA binding to a
Trp-containing protein and am having a rough time finding appropriate
references on how the community has analyzed one-to-one protein-to-DNA
binding.  I have my own ideas about how to go about it (namely
relating the degree of Trp fluorescence quenching directly to the
fraction of bound protein), but I would like to find out about
analytical methods that have been used successfully so far.  I have
read several papers by Lohman & company on multi-site binding of SSB
protein to DNA, but these analyses are unnecessarily complex for my

Does anyone have any references on the topic they can pass along to me?
