Chiral discrimination of racemic carbazole carbonyl (CC)-amino acids with linear alkyl sidechain (C1-C4) by bovine serum albumin (BSA) was investigated by competitive replacement experiments using dansyl-L-proline and dansyl-D-norvaline as fluorescent probes. It was found that the CC derivatives of the D-forms of alanine (C1), amino butyric acid (C2), norvaline (C3), and norleucine (C4) bound to the dansyl-L-proline site much more strongly than their L-forms, whereas the interactions between both enantiomers of these amino acids with dansyl-D-norvaline site were slight.
