Photoconversion in the red fluorescent protein from the sea anemone Entacmaea quadricolor: is cis-trans isomerization involved?


Proteins from the family of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) are presently extensively used in molecular and cellular biology. Recent studies suggest that isomerization of the chromophore occurs upon excitation and is involved in nonradiative deactivation. Using Raman spectroscopy, we report on photoinduced cis-trans isomerization in the red fluorescent… (More)
