Two photochromic activators of the electrogenic membrane of the electroplax of Electrophorus electricus are described. Trans-3,3'-bis[alpha-(trimethylammonium)methyl]azobenzene dibromide (Bis-Q), one… (More)
The enzymic activity of acetylcholinesterase can be photoregulated through the mediation of photochromic inhibitors of the enzyme. N-p-phenylazophenyl-N-phenylcarbamyl fluoride, an irreversible… (More)
These experiments employ the photoisomerizable compound, 3,3'-bis-[alpha-(trimethylammonium)methyl]azobenzene (Bis-Q), to study the response to muscarinic agents in frog myocardium. In homogenates… (More)
trans-3,3'-Bis[alpha-(trimethylammonio)methyl]azobenzene bromide (BisQ) is a potent agonist of the acetylcholine receptor (AcChoR) of Electrophorus electricus. BisQ is highly constrained, suggesting… (More)
A variety of azobenzene compounds having bis-quaternary nitrogens have been shown to accelerate the hydrolysis by chymotrypsin of certain specific substrates by an allosteric mechanism. One of the… (More)
Voltage-jump and light-flash experiments have been performed on isolated Electrophorus electroplaques exposed simultaneously to nicotinic agonists and to the photoisomerizable compound… (More)
