Below 195 K, the bacteriorhodopsin photocycle could not be adequately described with exponential kinetics [Dioumaev, A. K., and Lanyi, J. K. (2007) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 104, 9621-9626] but required distributed kinetics, previously found in hemoglobin and myoglobin at temperatures below the vitrification point of the surrounding solvent. The aim of this study is to determine which factors cause the switch from this low-temperature regime to the conventional kinetics observed at ambient… CONTINUE READING
