Time Resolved Structural Biology of Photoactive Proteins - Sebastian Westenhoff

The aim of our research is to understand structural dynamics of biological photoactive systems. Time-resolved crystallography allows us to make molecular movies of photoactive systems transiting between their illuminated and non-illuminated states. This allows us to identify how the conformational changes in proteins occur and which molecules are participating in the dynamics. Combining the results from the other topics with SFX data allows us to increase our knowledge of how photoactive proteins work on a molecular level.
