Abstract

From the pressure induced frequency shift of photochemical holes burnt into mesoporphyrin substituted horseradish peroxidase, we determined the compressibility of the protein and the vacuum frequency of the chromophore. From the compressibility, an estimation of the volume fluctuations of the biomolecule is possible.
