Abstract

We investigate photophysical processes that take place in macromolecules of a fluorescent protein mRFP1 under UV excitation [when the energy transfer in a localized donor–acceptor (LDA) pair, which is presented in the molecules of the protein, becomes apparent]. We used a special approach based on the fluorescence laser spectroscopy technique. The energy transfer rates in LDA pairs and photophysical parameters of fluorophores (chromophores) of three spectral forms, which coexist in the ensemble of the macromolecules of this protein, were determined under pulse UV laser excitation.
