Zusammenfassung The photocycle of the light-activated channel, channelrhodopsin-2 C128T, has been studied by resonance Raman (RR) spectroscopy focussing on the intermediates P380 and P353 that constitute a side pathway in the recovery of the parent state. The P353 species displays a UV-vis absorption spectrum with a fine-structure reminiscent of the reduced-retro form of bacteriorhodopsin, whereas the respective RR spectra differ substantially. Instead, the RR spectra of the P380/P353 intermediate couple are closely related to that of a free retinal in the all-trans configuration. These findings imply that the parent state recovery via P380/P353 involves the transient hydrolysis and re-formation of the retinal-protein linkage.
