Flavin-binding fluorescent proteins (FbFPs) are a class of fluorescent reporters that have been increasingly used as reporters in the study of cellular structures and dynamics. Flavin's intrinsic high singlet oxygen ((1)O2) quantum yield (ΦΔ = 0.51) provides a basis for the development of new FbFP mutants capable of photosensitising (1)O2 for mechanistic(More)
LOV-based fluorescent proteins (FPs) are an alternative class of fluorescent reporters with unique properties which complement the well-established proteins of the GFP family. One of the most important features of LOV-based FPs is the independence of molecular oxygen for the development of their specific fluorescence. Furthermore, they are characterized by(More)
In all photosynthetic organisms, chlorophylls function as light-absorbing photopigments allowing the efficient harvesting of light energy. Chlorophyll biosynthesis recurs in similar ways in anoxygenic phototrophic proteobacteria as well as oxygenic phototrophic cyanobacteria and plants. Here, the biocatalytic conversion of protochlorophyllide to(More)
Light, oxygen, voltage (LOV) domains are widely distributed in plants, algae, fungi, bacteria, and represent the photo-responsive domains of various blue-light photoreceptor proteins. Their photocycle involves the blue-light triggered adduct formation between the C(4a) atom of a non-covalently bound flavin chromophore and the sulfur atom of a conserved(More)
DOI: will be assigned We investigate dilepton production in transport-based approaches and show that the baryon couplings of the ρ meson represent the most important ingredient for understanding the measured dilepton spectra. At low energies (of a few GeV), the baryon resonances naturally play a larger role and affect already the vacuum spectra via(More)
Coarse-grained output from transport calculations is used to determine thermal dilepton emission rates by applying medium-modified spectral functions from thermal quantum field theoretical models. By averaging over an ensemble of events generated with the UrQMD transport model, we extract the local thermodynamic properties at each time step of the(More)
Dilepton invariant-mass spectra for heavy-ion collisions at SIS 18 and BEVALAC energies are calculated using a coarse-grained time evolution from the Ultra-relativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics (UrQMD) model. The coarse-graining of the microscopic simulations enables to calculate thermal dilepton emission rates by application of in-medium spectral(More)

Dilepton production in heavy-ion collisions at top SPS energy is investigated within a coarse-graining approach that combines an underlying microscopic evolution of the nuclear reaction with the application of medium-modified spectral functions. Extracting local energy and baryon density for a grid of small space-time cells and going to each cell's rest(More)
