Abstract

The difference of rhodopsin and metarhodopsin II (MII) absorption spectra exhibits a characteristic pattern in the UV wavelength range, consisting of peaks at 278, 286, 294, 302 nm. These difference bands are thought to result from the perturbation of the environments of tryptophan and/...read more
