Determination of the Transiently Lowered pKaof the Retinal Schiff Base during the Photocycle of Bacteriorhodopsin

Reprotonation of the transiently deprotonated retinal Schiff base in the bacteriorhodopsin photocycle is greatly slowed when the proton donor Asp-96 is removed with site-specific mutagenesis, but its rate is restored upon adding azide or other weak acids such as formate and cyanate. As expected,... Full description
