Abstract

original image

Elektronentransferreaktionen des Grün fluoreszierenden Proteins (GFP) aus Quallen können nach Einbau des Metallionen chelatisierenden Tyrosinderivats pyTyr leichter beobachtet werden. In ihrer Zuschrift auf S. 10407 ff. zeigen W. M. Gong, J. Y. Wang et al., dass der lichtinduzierte Elektronentransfer zwischen dem an pyTyr gebundenen CuII-Ion und dem GFP-Chromophor auf der Nanosekundenskala erfolgt und vom Abstand abhängig ist.
