Ultrafast, intra-oligomer fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) between an immature green-emitting GFP-like chromophore to the mature red-emitting chromophore is found in the novel red fluorescent protein wt-DsRed (the picture shows the steady-state absorption (solid line) and emission (dotted) spectra). Since FRET is by its very nature a short(More)
Alanyl peptide nucleic acids have been designed to generate linear and rigid pairing complexes. Femtosecond time resolved electron transfer dynamics studies of alanyl-PNA double strands where both strands contain an intercalated 9-amino-6-chloro-2-methoxy-acridine in its protonated state reveal a strong similarity to nearest neighbor interstrand/intrastrand(More)
The radical pair recombination of an intramolecular electron-transfer system containing a transition metal moiety has been addressed by femtosecond spectroscopy. The radical pair is formed by ultrafast electron transfer (90 fs) from a ferrocene residue to a photoexcited Nile blue moiety. Its recombination proceeds on the picosecond time scale in a(More)
The mechanism of photoinduced hole injection into DNA has been studied using an integrated approach that combines NMR structural analysis, time-resolved spectroscopy, and quantum-chemical calculations. A covalently linked acridinium derivative, the protonated 9-amino-6-chloro-2-methoxyacridine (X+), is replacing a thymine and separated from either guanine(More)
