Key building block of photoresponsive biomimetic systems.

Abstract

The conformational, electrical, and optical intrinsic properties of L-phenylazophenylalanine (L-PAP), a nonproteinogenic photoresponsive amino acid used to modulate the binding affinity and activity of peptides and proteins, have been systematically investigated using quantum mechanical calculations, with special emphasis being put on the trans-to-cis… (More)
