What is the distance dependence for fluorescence resonance energy transfer predicted by the Förster model?

What will be an ideal response?

  • #1
  • Answer
The central ideas of the Förster model are (1 ) that the efficiency of resonance energy transfer is dependent on the distance between the donor and acceptor, (2 ) that the absorption band of the acceptor should overlap with the fluorescence band of the donor, and (3 ) that the relative orientation of the donor and acceptor pair will influence the efficiency of transfer.
