Photochemistry in retinal proteins (RPs) is determined both by the properties of the retinal chromophore and by its interactions with the surrounding protein. The initial retinal configuration, and the isomerization coordinates active in any specific protein, must be important factors influencing the course of photochemistry. This is illustrated by the vast differences between the photoisomerization dynamics in visual pigments which start 11-cis and end all-trans, and those observed in… CONTINUE READING
