Abstract

The Arrhenius plot of the de-excitation rate of tryptophan triplet state deviates from linearity in the physiological temperature range for several proteins with buried tryptophans, similarly to the behaviour of enzyme activity. A model is presented featuring two de-excitation pathways whose effectiveness is regulated by protein dynamics.
