The molecular mechanism of helicases at the single molecule level was studied using fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) between two dyes, donor and acceptor. Measured FRET efficiency was shown to be an indicator of the distance between two dyes, revealing the extent and the time-course of unwinding.
