The role of adenine in fast excited-state deactivation of FAD: a femtosecond mid-IR transient absorption study.

Abstract

We present a study of excited-state dynamics of two flavin cofactors: flavin-adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin-mononucleotide (FMN). We used femtosecond mid-R transient absorption spectroscopy to study the effect of FAD conformation on its excited-state behavior. The conformation of FAD was modulated by changing the solvent polarity: in D(2)O, FAD is… (More)
