Zusammenfassung
Continuous-wave high-field electron paramagnetic resonance (95 GHz, 3.4 T) is performed on a spin label side chain located at residue position 171 in the proton entrance channel of bacteriorhodopsin. The conformational differences of three bacteriorhodopsin mutants, the single mutant F171C, the double mutant D96G/17171C, and the triple mutant D96G/FI71C/F219L, are reflected n different g, and A. tensor component shifts of the nitroxide side chain. The most polar microenvironment is found in the single mutant, whereas the open proton entrance channel reported for the triple mutant allows a reorientation of the nitroxide group towards a microenvironment of lower polarity and/or reduced hydrogen bonding, The experimental data of the double mutant are explained by a light-independent equilibrium of two nitroxide orientations with different polarities of the local microenvironment. Upon illumination the spectrum of the single mutant reveals g(xx) and A(zz) tensor component shifts which resemble those determined for the triple mutant in the dark. This result provides strong evidence for a light-induced opening of the proton entrance channel of the single mutant similar to that found in the unilluminated triple mutant, in agreement with electron diffraction data.
