Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic study on retinochrome and its primary photoproduct, lumiretinochrome.

Abstract

Structural studies of retinochrome, and its photoproduct, lumiretinochrome, were done by Fourier transform infrared difference spectroscopy. The absorption bands in the carbonyl stretching region which shift in D2O show the changes in the protein part during the photoreaction. Strong absorption bands in the finger-print region show that the all-trans… (More)
