Abstract

In this review, we shall outline the basic principles of circular dichroism (CD) indicating the types of structural information relevant to the study of biomolecules, such as proteins or DNA. We are mainly interested to show the utility of this technique to study protein-ligand, DNA-ligand and protein-DNA interactions.
