Five nucleic acid binding cyanine dyes were synthesized and their photophysical properties were evaluated. Changing a single heteroatom in the chromophore causes major differences both in brightness and photostability between the dyes. With such alteration, the brightness of the chromophore increased two-fold compared to the one found in SYBR Green I.

The Photocycle of Bacteriophytochrome Is Initiated by Counterclockwise Chromophore Isomerization Morozov, Dmitry; Modi, Vaibhav; Mironov, Vladimir; Groenhof, Gerrit (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2022)Photoactivation of bacteriophytochrome involves a cis–trans photoisomerization of a biliverdin chromophore, but neither the precise sequence of events nor the direction of the isomerization is known. Here, we used nonadiabatic ...
The hairpin extension controls solvent access to the chromophore binding pocket in a bacterial phytochrome : a UV–vis absorption spectroscopy study Rumfeldt, Jessica; Kurttila, Moona; Takala, Heikki; Ihalainen, Janne A. (Springer, 2021)Solvent access to the protein interior plays an important role in the function of many proteins. Phytochromes contain a specific structural feature, a hairpin extension that appears to relay structural information from the ...
