Mechanisms of photoswitch conjugation and light activation of an ionotropic glutamate receptor.

Abstract

The analysis of cell signaling requires the rapid and selective manipulation of protein function. We have synthesized photoswitches that covalently modify target proteins and reversibly present and withdraw a ligand from its binding site due to photoisomerization of an azobenzene linker. We describe here the properties of a glutamate photoswitch that… (More)
