Abstract
The basic intensity dependent optical properties of photoactive yellow protein were studied and shown to resemble to those of bacteriorhodop sin, Using a set of rate equations and a modified photocycle the trans mittance behaviour was explained. Fitting the theoretical intensity de pendent transmittance curves to the measurements was done by adjusting the photochemical parameters and the relaxation times. The model expl ains the experiments.
