Photoisomerization of a protein-bound chromophore is the basis of light sensing and signaling in many photoreceptors. Phytochrome photoreceptors can be photoconverted reversibly between the Pr and Pfr states through photoisomerization of the methine bridge between rings C and D. Ground-state heterogeneity of the chromophore has been reported for both Pr and… CONTINUE READING
