Optogenetics has revolutionized neurosciences, where ion-transporting microbial rhodopsins are utilized as tools for light-induced neuronal excitation and suppression. Channelrhodopsin (ChR), a light-gated cation channel, is used to excite neurons by light. Recently, several chimeric proteins have been designed for better optogenetics application. Here we applied low-temperature spectroscopy to the chimeric ChR, ReaChR (Red-activatable ChR). We found accumulation of photointermediates at lowdoi:10.2142/biophys.54.s159_2 fatcat:echzmqtff5b6dmdhava37b34ii
