The cover picture shows how protein matrices can regulate the spatial arrangement and orientation of a heme-based donor (Zn-heme: ZnPP)-sensitizer (Ru2+(bpy)3)-acceptor (cyclic viologen: BXV4+) triad. A U-shape conformation of the triad without protein matrix changes into a triangle arrangement by incorporation into apocytochrome b562 (Cyt-b562), or into a further extended conformation by apomyoglobin (Mb) matrix. The electron transfer pathways and the lifetimes of the photoinduced charge-separated states were remarkably affected by the protein wrapping effect.
