The empirical Badger-Bauer relationship allows for the estimation of energy differences of the hydrogen-bonding interaction between molecules in different conditions using the experimental values of the band shift.
Therefore, vibrational spectroscopy is well suited to the studies of chemical bond distortion during enzymatic catalysis. The conventional methods of investigating nuclear vibrational properties of proteins, namely spontaneous infrared, Raman resonance spectroscopy, have serious limitations, because many vibrational modes contribute to the spectrum of a protein at any given frequency. To overcome these limitations, new experimental approaches have been developed during the last decade. In Raman differential spectroscopy, a conventional Raman spectrometer was adapted to measure small differences in the Raman spectra Deng and Callender The spectrometer system permits detection with an accuracy of 0.
Laser light is focused on a specially fabricated split cell from underneath.
The Raman-scattering light at is frequency shifted from the incoming laser light by the frequency of a vibrational mode. Scattered light is collected from one side of the split cell. The two spectra are then subtracted in a computer to form the difference spectrum. Raman differential spectroscopy was applied to the investigation of enzyme-substrate complexes. The protein phosphoglucomutase PGM catalyzes the interconversion of glucose 1-phosphate to glucose 6-phosphate.
It was shown that the difference in the spectra of enzyme complexes with the substrate samples, the phosphate group of which was enriched with and correspondingly, belong to the P-O symmetric stretch with a frequency of The differential Raman spectra of complexes of lactate dehydrogenase with cofactors NAD and NADH and substrates lactate and pyruvate were detected. Time-resolved anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy is used for monitoring vibrational relaxation dynamics in solution and provides information about specific modes in molecules under investigation Nakabayashi et al.
The experimental setup of a picosecond time-resolved Raman spectrometer is schematically shown in Fig. A pump pulse excites a molecule, and the anti-Stokes Raman spectrum of vibrationally excited state of the molecule is obtained by a probe pulse following the pump pulse after the delay time. The method was used for the investigation of Fe-ligand interactions, an active site of carbonmonoxy CooA hemoprotein Uchida et al. This protein acts as a transcriptional activator for the expression of CO oxidation system in bacteria.
To identify the axial ligand of CO-bound CoooA, the protein samples, with and without imidazol ligand, were photodissociated by a picosecond laser pulse, and vibrations of the transiently formed five-coordinate species were monitored by the subsequent picosecond probe pulse. In CARS two ultrashort pulses of laser light from femtoseconds to picoseconds in duration arrive simultaneously at the sample of interest Mukamel, ; Fourkas, and references herein.
The difference between the frequencies matches the frequency of a Raman active vibrational mode in the sample. The distinct advantage of CARS is that it is a background free technique, since the signal propagates in a unique direction. To overcome the problem of separating homogeneous and nonhomogeneous contributions to the line shape, the special technique, called the photon echo, has been developed Fourkas, and references therein. The photon spin echo technique generally involves five laser pulses of at least two different colors.
Two time-coincident pulses of light create a Raman coherence at frequency that is allowed to involve for longer time after which the response for a single vibrational frequency occurs. At this point, another pulse pair is focused upon the sample. Each pulse in these pairs interacts with the system twice, reversing the coherence so that it is frequency This coherence is allowed to involve for time second delay, after which the response for a single vibrational frequency takes place.

The ability to rephase inhomogeneity in Raman-active intermolecular vibrations was increased with the use of five-order spectroscopic technique Tanamura and Mukamel, ; Mukamel, ; Fourkas, Five-order spectroscopy relies on the existence of some sorts of nonlinearity, either in the coordinate dependence of polarizability or in CHAPTER 1 5 the vibrational potential, and involves a three vibrational energy level. In this technique, the 2D response is obtained when the system is subjected to pairs of excitation pulses followed by the probe pulse.
This technique provides the capacity for probing ultrafast intramolecular and intermolecular dynamical processes including charge transfer and chemical reactions. Multidimentional nonlinear infrared spectroscopy is used for identification of dynamic structures in liquids and conformational dynamics of molecules, peptides and, in principle, small proteins in solution Asplund et al.
This spectroscopy incorporates the ability to control the responses of particular vibrational transitions depending on their couplings to one another. Two and three—pulse IR photon echo techniques were used to eliminate the inhomogeneous broadening in the IR spectrum.
In the third-order IR echo methods, three phase-locked IR pulses with wave vectors and are focused on the sample at time intervals. The IR photon echo eventually emitted and the complex 2D IR spectrum is obtained with the use of Fourier transformation. The method was applied to the examination of vibrational properties of N-methyl acetamid and a dipeptide, in The 2D IR spectrum showed peaks at 1, and 1, the two frequencies of the acyl-proline dipeptide.

Geometry and time-ordering of the incoming pulse sequence in fifth-order 2D spectroscopy is shown in Fig. Femtosecond linear dichroism Circular dichroism is associated with the difference in the extinction coefficient between the left- eL and right-hand eR polarized light: 6 CHAPTER 1 where and are coefficients, and are the matrix elements of the dipolar electronic transition moment and dipolar magnetic transition moment, respectively, and is the function of the line shape.
The pump pulse passes through an optical delay line and a polarizer, and crosses the probe beam on the sample cell at a small angle. The probe beam passes through a polarizer that is adjusted to produce a linear polarization at the pump beam. After traversing the sample, the probe pulse is passed through a polarizer for the separation of light polarized parallel and perpendicular to the pump beam. The ratio between normalized transmitted probe energies in the presence and absence of excitation of the sample by the pump pulse formed the basis of the polarization-resolved transition, recorded as a function of the time delay t between passages of the pump and probe pulses.
The main luminescence parameters traditionally measured, are the frequency of maximal intensity intensity I, the quantum yield, the lifetime of the exited state polarization and excited state energy migration Lacovicz, The usefulness of the fluorescence methods is greatly enhanced by the developments of new experimental techniques such as nano-, pico- and femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopy, single-molecule detection, cofocal microscopy and two-photon correlation spectroscopy.
Time —resolved fluorescence spectroscopy The excitation of a chromophore group is accompanied by a change in the electron dipole moment of the molecule.
This involves a change in the interaction energy with the surrounding molecules, which manifests itself by a shift of the time-dependent frequency maximum of the fluorescence spectra, relaxation shift Bakhshiev, : where the indices and 0 are related to the nmax of the time -resolved emission spectrum at a given moment, and respectively, and is the characteristic time of reorganization of the dipoles in the medium around the fluorophore.
The value of CHAPTER 1 7 can also be independently derived from the analysis of the temperature T dependencies of the relaxation shift using the following equation: where T is the relaxation shift in the steady-state fluorescence spectra and is the fluorescence life time.

Gradual increase of temperature results in the gradual decrease of the The experimental T -T dependence can be used for the estimation of in each temperature if is known. In real systems viscose liquids, polymers, proteins, membranes, etc. Analysis of relaxation shifts in such systems requires special approaches.
Nano- and picosecond time resolved fluorescence technique is used for monitoring the dynamic Stokes shift of a tryptophane, Trp31, in cytidine monophosphate kinase from E. This residue is located at the opposite site of the nucleotidebinding sites, in a partially hydrophobic region, but not very far from the protein surface.
It is shown that the emission maximum of the fluorophore fluorescence is shifted to nm by decreasing the temperature to K with the time constant about ps. In the temperature range K, the relaxation shift kinetics exhibit multiphase behavior with time constants ranging from ps to several nanoseconds with a total amplitude between and The dynamics of the fluorescence relaxation shift of the dual fluorescence-nitroxide probe incorporated into the hydrophobic binding site of human serum albumin HAS was monitored indirectly Rubtsova et.
Both methods showed that the relaxation of the protein groups in the vicinity of the dansyl moiety of the FNP in the excited state occurs, upon the ambient temperature, with a rate constant of about one ns. The latter is attributed to a photoinduced intermolecular proton transfer. The rotational relaxation of HAS in water is the time scale of tens of nanoseconds.
