Tryptophan Residues as Natural Ultrafast Voltmeters in Retinal Proteins

The comparison between UV transient absorption spectra of wild type bacteriorhodopsin and two tryptophan-mutant proteins gives evidence for the possibility to use tryptophans as ultrafast probes for the photo-induced dipole moment change in retinal proteins.
