Abstract: A procedure to investigate the folding of group II intron by single molecule Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (smFRET) using total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) is described in this chapter. Using our previous studies on the folding and dynamics of a large ribozyme in the presence of metal ions (i.e., Mg(2+) and Ca(2+)) and/or the DEAD-box protein Mss116 as an example, we here describe step-by-step procedures to perform experiments. smFRET allows the investigation of individual molecules, thus, providing kinetic and mechanistic information hidden in ensemble averaged experiments.
