We report on preliminary experiments wherein we measured the distribution of A substates in Carbonmonoxy-Myoglobin (MbCO) partially dried either in the presence of a saccharide (glucose, sucrose, or trehalose) or in the absence of sugar. The results indicate that in our experimental conditions, glucose introduces the smallest spectral perturbation; this indicates a sizeable difference in protein-monosaccharide and protein-disaccharide interaction. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Abstract Metmyoglobin has been reduced at low temperature (below 100 K) using x-rays or by excitation of tris(2,2',bipyridine)ruthenium(II) chloride with visible light. Upon reduction, an intermediate state is formed where the structure of the protein is very similar to that of metmyoglobin with...

    In this work the temperature dependence of the Soret band line shape in carbonmonoxy myoglobin is re-analyzed by using both the full correlator approach in the time domain and the frequency domain approach. The new analyses exploit the full density of vibrational states of carbonmonoxy myoglobin...
